Read an Excerpt

Gunpowder Falls State Park: Sweet Air Area It's almost a crime that this exceedingly beautiful 1,250-acre section of Gunpowder Falls State Park is so lightly used. But what a treat it is for hikers seeking solitude.
From the trailhead, follow the path as it merges into a wide farm road. You'll soon pass an open field to the left. There's a cornfield straight ahead where, at 0.1 mile, you'll come to the first split. Head left to stay on the yellow-blazed Barley Pond Loop. Follow the tree line around the cornfield, turning right at a "You are here" sign at 0.3 miles and reaching the edge of the woods at 0.6 miles. There's a wooden sign here reading, "The woods were made for the hunter of dreams." There are many spots along the hike where similar signs have been painted with inspirational, nature-oriented quotations. There's a certain irony here: though the quotations are pleasant, this hike is so beautiful that it's the last place that needs any embellishment. The views are plenty to inspire grand thoughts.
