The map below show the trail along the Patapsco River.
Most of the trail is easy to follow by dirt trail
At some points the trail climbs the rolling terrain high above the river.
At most points it stays very close to the river.
Along the trail you can see the granite outcroppings that once were the basis for the granite industry in the area and gave the name to the town of Granite.
There are even some caves along the trail like the one shown below.
Great volunteer opportunity if you would like to share your love of nature in Howard County. The Howard County Conservancy is now looking for volunteers to take their naturalist training in March. Check it out here.
