Description

Buzzards Rock Trail offers a scenic loop off the Grist Mill Trail, with stretches of varying difficulty. The southern ends of the trail have steeper slopes, rising up the ridge and crossing several streams. The middle of the trail to the north is much more mild with mostly flat paths that contain few obstacles. The highlight of the trail is the access to Ilchester Rocks, an overlook above the Patapsco along the westward climb of the trail. There are numerous reroutes and trail closures surrounding Buzzards Rock Trail, so it is important to make note before reaching intersections. This trail follows a yellow blaze.
