Description

This is a short (.8 miles) but steep trail which leads down to the banks of the Patapsco River. The actual trail has switchbacks and some steps which help, but that trail is not clearly marked and its easy to get on even steeper side trails carved by
visitors.

I visited in October, and leaf litter made the rocky trail even more slippery. This is located in Patapsco State Park Hollofield area.
