Patapsco Valley State Park Ellicott City Reviews
Nice park with playgrounds and trails for all ages May 26, 2012
We came here early on a Saturday morning to hike the Cascade Falls Trail. It was about 2 miles long and had nice little waterfalls along the way. We walked the trail clockwise and it was steep at first but evened out quickly. I think anyone that is fairly active can hike this trail without a problem.
There are several other trails - 170 miles to be exact.
We spent some time cooling our feet in the river afterwards which was very nice. All in all a great way to get out of the house and enjoy nature.
We had packed a picnic which we left in the car for after our hike. The picnic areas can be reserved for events and there is plenty of space to lay out a blanket and enjoy the day. Bathrooms are available near the picnic sites as well.
