Gunpowder Falls North and South Loop Trail - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Tranquil woods, flowing river, and tumbling waterfalls make for a beautiful and head-clearing hike. 

Park in the lot on Bunker Hill Road and then continue a short ways to the trailhead (see map). There are no bridges for crossing the water so be prepared to pick your way across.

Excellent Hike

My dog and I love the trails in Gunpowder. It’s a bit of a drive, but worth it.
