Guyon flats and Tuffy’s Tavern trail

  • SSP 

Yet another great day outdoors! We plan on doing more technical and/or longer hikes with Shasta and today was one of those ‘dry-runs’. We were out there in the woods for about 3.5 hours and she did terrific! A decent elevation profile, blended in river-crossing, and of-course wonderful company. With an early start, the 6.5miles…

Oella Mills Loop – Patapsco

  • SSP 

With a lean path winding along the Patapsco river, this trail was quite different from the others around in this region. Kids had a great time around in the water just before we closed out the loop and finished the hike.

Thru Trail – Alberta Road Falls

  • SSP 

Gloomy weather, impending rain and breezy forecast – Great way to kick off the weekend with a short hike. Meena didn’t get to see the falls last time we were on this trail. So we decided to head back here with Shasta in the carrier. Made it back home just in time before the thunder-storms…

Buzzards Rock and Illchester tunnel hike – Patapasco

  • SSP 

One of those trails with a splendid combination of river, streams, tunnels, rail-line, good elevation profile and lots of rocks! Kids absolutely loved it! [gallery size="large" ids="8368,8367,8366,8365,8364,8363,8362,8361,8360,8359,8356,8355,8354"] Garmin Connect GPX

Soapstone Trail – Patapsco

  • SSP 

The trail we actually planned for had no parking spots left. Chanced upon Soapstone as we were driving back. A good 5mile loop with a decent elevation profile. [gallery size="large" columns="2" ids="8351,8350,8349"]   Garmin connect GPX
