Maryland › Soldiers Delight-Serpentine Trail
Added by The Outbound Collective
Short and sweet trail that offers a chance to see rare plants that only grow in serpentine soils.
Park in the area off of Deer Park road to access the trail. Dogs are welcome on leash. Trail can get muddy in the spring, and there are some stream crossings.

Best Trail In The Park
This is the best trail (in my opinion) in the park, it offers some pretty great views and some stream crossings which make it for an even more fun time! Be careful if you hike this after a big rain as it gets very eroded and muddy!
