    Today we’ll be talking about the fall beauty of Maryland’s state parks and my recent visit to Patapsco Valley State Park.

    It was a beautiful day out, almost 70 degrees, people were out, trails were looking great. If you go out there’s lots to do like jogging, horseback riding, and mountain biking.

    The trails are always real friendly, people are courteous, and you’ll see people walking their dogs.

    There are many different types of trails you can use, entrances to the park are located just off Route 1 and Montgomery Road in Elkridge.

    One of my favorite trails for running is the Rockburn Branch Trail in Patapsco State Park. The trail parallels a beautiful stream for some of the hike.

    If you’re ever in Elkridge stop on by, you won’t regret you did.

    Make sure you bring water, it gets hot in the summer, but it’s still good to stay hydrated in colder weather. In the fall, its nice to see the leaves off the trees because it allows you really to see lots of the varied terrain in the park.

    You’ll see many deer in the park especially in the fall around sunset.

    The trails are a nice quiet respite from all the crazy hectic hustle and bustle of the BWI metropolitan area.
