Gunpowder - Sweet Air Area We meet by the sign for the Barley Pond Loop which is located in the leftmost point of the parking area. Alternate Directions: Take 695 to Exit 27 Dulaney Valley Road north. Follow it over the Loch Raven Reservoir bridge and merge left onto Jarretsville Pike (MD Rt. 146 North). Once you cross into Harford County, take the first right onto Hess Road. Follow Hess to a U-Turn right onto Park Road and then the first left onto Moores Road. Take a right into the park on Dalton Bevard Road. We meet in the parking area as described at the top of this page. Public Transportation: There is no public transportation to, or in, Gunpowder Falls State Park. NOTE: Please remember to take the leader(s) number(s) with you but please respect the fact that we are all volunteers and there is often no cell coverage at trailheads and varies according to service provider. If you call very close to hike time, please understand that we are very busy with pre-hike preparations for ourselves in addition to group sign in, pre-hike briefing, and then leading the hike. It is also very difficult to provide instructions to someone while following them too, hence providing very detailed directions on this separate page. Leaders are advised to not answer phones once a hike is started so we don't miss a turn on the trail due to the distraction of a call. Thank you for your understanding and see you there!
