Description:

Gunpowder Falls State Park is large state park in Harford and Baltimore Counties, consisting of several non-contiguous sections along Big and Little Gunpowder Falls. Note that these are not in fact waterfalls, but refer to rivers. We were up near Baltimore for a wedding and came here to go hiking before the ceremony and went to the Jerusalem Mill area. We hiked the Jerusalem Mill and Little Gunpowder Falls trails up to Wildcat Branch and back. The hike was surprisingly hilly and once we got away from the trailhead and into the woods, we almost forgot we were just outside Baltimore. We visited on a Saturday and we only saw a handful of other people on the trails. Although there are no real waterfalls as the name would suggest, the river is quite scenic - very rocky and lots of pretty little cascades.
