Write Up:
Conditions were good for a short hike into Patapsco SP via the soapstone trail. With it being a little cool and late, some flowers had closed up a bit. We took our time and walked down to the picnic area and back in about 1.5 hrs - a very slow pace since there was a lot to see. Marsh Marygolds carpeted much of the area. Trout Lilly, Bloodroot, Spring Beauties and early Saxifrage were in bloom. May Apples were just starting to emerge.
