  • Maudslay State Park is a beautiful state park to do anything from walking or running, to eating dinner watching the sunset, to riding your horse. The trails are seemly never ending and you are able to get lost in the beauty out there. Most of the trails are nice and soft with a layer of mulch covering them this is good on the joints. All the people I see here very very nice.
  • Lovely place. I grew up just down the street. This has always been a goto nature fix kind of place for me. Lovely trails for walking, jogging and biking, complete with all the sights, sounds and smells that come with a stroll in NE wooded areas.
  • Feel free to take your dog off leash so it can harass wildlife and runners!
  • A very special place for me and my family. Been going there for years. Memorial day weekend the rhodies and azaleas bloom and its stunningly beautiful. They have fun festivals, like a haunted trail walk in October. They have art exhibits and sculptures every year. And winter cross country skiing. I even had a wedding there a very long time ago! Great place!
  • Beautiful place. We went with our 1 year old. You can push a carriage down the trails, but some parts are difficult due to terrain. Beautiful spot for a picnic as there are many trees for cover and the open grass area is accessible from the parking lot and is close to the restrooms.
