We'll be hiking the Stocksdale and SweathouseTrails of Gunpowder Falls State Park for about 5.5 miles. Trail begins as a gravel and dirt path, then climbs the side of the river valley on single-track trail.

Afterwards we'll go to a close-by restaurant for lunch.

Parking is sometimes a challenge, so if at all possible, plan to carpool. Overflow parking is available a little south of the main parking lot on Belair Road in the Park-n-Ride.

Meet the group by the trail map in the front part of the main parking lot.

More information on the trail can be found here.
