-Two sections of course have changed since the prior year. We have added nearly a mile of new trail, near the Hilton campground just before the Buzzards Rock climb.

We have added nearly a mile of new trail, near the Hilton campground just before the Buzzards Rock climb. "The Wall" remains at the end of the course, and the major river crossing has been removed at the parks request - there are still a dozen small creek crossings to cool yourself at!
  
 You start out at Shelter 105 and head around the baseball field, another shelter and playground in order give us a ¼ mile loop in order to sparse people out before heading onto the same road you drove in on for 400 ft. You take Gun Rd across the Patapsco River on a small automobile bridge. Interesting fact: The Patapsco river used to be deep and bring ships up to pick up rolls (hence Rolling Rd) of wheat or crops. Now it is silted up from human development and barely deep enough to float a raft on. You start out at Shelter 105 and head around the baseball field, another shelter and playground in order give us a ¼ mile loop in order to sparse people out before heading onto the same road you drove in on for 400 ft.

-The large river crossing was removed at the request of the park. They did not want us encouraging a common crossing point that would turn into a future crossing point by hundreds of others. Also, fisherman complain. There will remain a dozen smaller creek crossings, some of them 1-2 feet deep. Ussually you can tip toe on rocks over them.+The large river crossing was removed at the request of the park.
