Swamp Forest Trail

The trail surface is forest floor and sometimes improved with gravel. It's well suited for trail running and mountain biking. Although the trail winds around the pond, it's mostly a walk in the woods, with several places to access the pond along the route. The bugs were out in force, and the pond level was high and encroaching on the trail in numerous places. Much of the forest floor sections were wet and muddy; hence the name Swamp Forest Trail. We walked the entire loop in about 2hrs, 40 min. at about a 21 minute mile pace.

Trails are okay. Nice view of the water but the bugs are awful. Couldn't enjoy much because of this. However, did drive on the one loop and this was quite nice. Safe from the bugs!

Went when it was a little colder, so there was less traffic. Did about two or three trails that were connected, and they were peaceful and gorgeous. I would definitely go again. Great for trail running, and part of the trail connects to the Mason Dixon Monument, which is quite a treat.

Trap Pond State Park Loop

Did a section of the loop and it was well maintained and in May the greenery is beautiful to see along the pond before bugs are in abundance. Did not expect to pay an out of state fee just to enter the park, $8. I will be back with the kayak but I wasn't overly thrilled.
