Trail shared by Patapsco Heritage Greenway

Bestivus provides a challenging alternative to the Pickall Trail and Festivus. Views and obstacles abound.

Patapsco Heritage Greenway

Features Fall Colors · River/Creek · Wildlife

Parking via the Pickall day-use area is restricted to those renting shelters there. This trail must be accessed from other locations.

Description

Splitting off of the Festivus trail, this path cuts along the ridgeline of the Pickall Area above the Pickall Trail. While the trail does not have a significant climb overall, it is constantly rising and falling as it passes several stream beds that have eroded their way toward the Patapsco.

Some of these stream beds have low water levels, while others run dry outside of rainy conditions, but all present some level of obstacle in crossing. The trail also includes various obstacles in its terrain such as rocks and root outcroppings, all while following a rather steep edge towards the Patapsco.
