    This was my first time visiting here. Unfortunately, I was unable to make the hike up to the top. The views were not too great with just the driving loop. It was a nice drive though. And free.  more »

    First off, I need to state that I am a bit jaded in the scenery department so take what I say with a grain of salt. After living in Colorado, it is hard to compete with that type scenery. Four of us d...  more »

    I went hiking here recently with some friends. I thought it was an enjoyable hike. I think we ended up hiking about seven miles or so. We switched between trails a couple times, so it was hard to tell...  more »

    Great hiking trails from easy to hard. Awesome views from the summit as well.

    Great parking and great view. Only very few spots on the trail were not maintained. Few of the stone stairs were broken and branches were in the way. Majority was great though.

    Nice, challenging mountain with plenty of hiking trails decently marked. Plenty of hills and inclines keep the hike quite challenging. If you start from the entrance and hike to the purple trail and loop back, trust me you're in for a killer leg workout.

    Lots of great trails, and if you can manage to go on a week day, you'll avoid the crowds of autumn weekends. Parking at the entrance is limited, but there are three more parking lots at the view overlooks near the summit. This park is owned and maintained by a private entity which allows free entrance/parking. Make a donation if you can to continue to keep it free. And no, I am not a member of the private association, but would like to see it remain open and free to public access.

    There are some pretty decent hiking trails for the family here. There are also some good views from the summit. For Maryland, I'll give this place 4 stars however Sugarloaf wouldn't count as a large hill where I come from in California. If you like wine, there is a great place not far from here to have some post-hike libations and fancy snacks.
