Big Gunpowder Falls
We enjoy riding along the Big Gunpowder Falls in Gunpowder Falls State Park. The Big Gunpowder Trail runs from Rt 40 (Pulaski Hwy) to Harford Road at least 10 miles. There are several loops-Cow Branch Trail, Lost Pond Trail, Sawmill Trail, Stockdale Trail and Sweathouse Trail-that probably add another 10 miles of riding. So, you can make a nice day of riding. There is a small parking lot off of RT 40 on Jones Road and a large parking lot on Rt 1 (Belair Road) at the Big Gunpowder.
