This hike is taken from www.midatlantichikes.com: http://midatlantichik... is the trail description, along with a mapped route. While the circumnavigation of the park is about 9 miles, most of it is fairly level/rolling hills. No significant stream crossings on this one.
Fido, as long as he/she is well behaved, is more than welcome along on this hike. My dogs will be with me.
NOTE: The directions take you to one of the park gates. We will be meeting at the old grist mill by the river bank--not the park gate.. In doubt, please call the cell listed above. (note that cell reception may be spotty inside the park) I will be there at/before 10. As always, carpooling is highly encouraged. My cell is 617 6867280
This is an 8.7 mile circumnavigation of the park. The first 1.5 miles is along the old canal and railroad grade (The latter was constructed to deliver construction supplies to the Conowingo Hydro-electric dam further upriver.). we'll be able to view the river for this entire stretch. Then, climb up to a low plateau and walk through alternating woods and fields. Besides the river and canal you’ll pass an old Flint Tower that remains from the Revolutionary War, an extremely old American Beech and, if you find the un-marked trail, a White Oak that also dates back to the revolution. The starting and ending point is an operational Grist Mill that dates back to 1798.
Post hike lunch in town (there's a great bar/ grill on the riverfront that allowsdogs (Tidewater grill) on their deck.
I'm also planning to stop by Havre de Grace's chocolate/ candy shop as well....
