Quiet place for a beautiful walk
Jan 20, 2014 by: Goya B from Leuven
I had one day of so I came to the state parc for a few hours of walk. Loved the quietness as I seemed to be the only visitor that Wednesday. I started with the heritage trail and the continued with the Land of Promise trail. Both beautifully white thanks to the snow that fell a few days before. I particularly loved the river South views at the boat ramp area.

We come here every time we are near and simply love it! We enjoy hiking and there are plenty of trails here. Lots of photo ops. The park is beautiful regardless of the time of year.
My favorite local place to escape the rat race!

Incredible trail network for mountain biking, trail running, horseback riding or hiking - a hidden gem in Harford County Maryland, right across the river from Cecil County. Plenty of camping available too. I try to get here at least twice a month for a run or bike ride. I live close to another boat launch, but I see lots of fishermen and kayakers putting in from here. The Stepping Stone Museum is a lot of fun, especially when they are having special events - if you live in or near Maryland and you haven't been here, it is a very inexpensive must see! There are also sections set aside for permit hunting - I have seen as many as 6 bucks during one Sunday run, the largest had at least 8 points, but was moving so fast I think he may have had more! There are places you have to pay to park or camp, but also places to park for day excursions with no charge (and not as many parking spaces). Lots and lots of history here too - I won't repeat what you can find on the State of Maryland website.
Beautiful views of the river

The Susquehanna State park is very vast with many car parks. We walked along near the river through the trees & the river looked beautiful. This park is vast & very peaceful with many different tracks. We had a picnic in one of the picnic areas. There were plenty of wooden benches & even an undercover area to sit & eat your food. There were BBQs on the grass area so you could take food to cook there. For the children there is a good play area within the picnic area.
Awesome trails, scenic views

I come to this park quite frequently to run on the trails, but this trip we decided to camp over night. For mid August is was not very crowded and the weather was fantastic. The park staff are great, very helpful and always with a smile. We also go the chance to meet with the volunteers who ride their horses in the park and work on the trails, etc. Great group of people and the kids love the horses. Great little park that I recommend to anyone who's interested.
