Gwynns Falls Trail

The two-mile portion of the trail between here and Trailhead 4 at Leon Day Park is the only section with a gravel surface. The trail follows the route of an early 1800s millrace along the Gwynns Falls that carried water from Dickeyville to power the five former Calverton Mills downstream. Look for stone support walls of the millrace, which was filled in to create a walking path through a Piedmont forest in 1913. Observe the many hardwood species along this linear arboretum and watch for woodland birds.

Study the Map Before you start or resume your journey, study the kiosk map and determine your destination along the 15-mile Gwynns Falls Trail. Look for similar kiosks at trailheads along the trail. Picnic facilities and restrooms are available at Trailheads 2 and 4. You also will find picnic tables along the trail's millrace section. If you wish, carefully cross Windsor Mill Road to the nearby Windsor Mills Conservation Trail that runs 1.5 miles along the Gwynns Falls and west of Windsor Hills on the ridge above. Alternatively, on the west side of the bridge, cross the road on your right and follow the trail one mile to the northwest to historic Dickeyville, or, turn left and travel southwest 1.1 miles on old Wetheredsville Road through Leakin Park to Winans Meadow (Trailhead 2).
