Nature at it's finest. Even the drive TO the park is beautiful. Off the beaten path but worth going out of your way for.

We went here primarily to see the grist mill - it was worth it. There are several other buildings in that area that are beautifully preserved. We took a few minutes to walk up by the railroad tracks and photograph the Susquehanna River - the park is a great place to walk and there are many trails - it was too cold for us to take advantage of that on this trip - but we made notes for the next time we are in the area.
Great Hiking Options

Susquehanna State Park is kind of a hidden secret in Harford County Maryland. There is a great network of color coded hiking trails with opportunities for all levels of hikers. Most trails take you through forested area with some stretches in open fields. Some trails run parallel to the Susquehanna River Several trails can be rocky and steep, so good hiking shoes are recommended. If you prefer level hiking a trails close to the river follows for the most part an old railroad bed and a canal towpath. Good opportunities to see water birds, ospreys and eagles along this trail.

Good hiking site -- trails range from very easy (gravel paths that are stroller accessible) to more challenging and rocky. Pretty views. Easy access in/out. Nice campgrounds.

We visited the Susquehanna State Park in Havre de Grace, MD and it is magnificent. There are two separate sites you want to visit: the first is "Rock Run" where you will see the beautiful 14-room mansion, a large stone barn, sone spring house, the incredible grist mill, Jersey Toll House and the Rock Run Miller's House. This is a wonderful place to walk around and enjoy views of the beautiful Susquehanna River. The second place is Steppingstone Museum, which preserves and demonstrates the rural arts and crafts of the 1880-1920 period. There is the home, a huge cannery, carriage house, barn, several other buildings and a great place to wander the grounds. We are very fortunate that Art and Bob were kind enough to show us around; the cannery is amazing! We would have enjoyed this on our own, but the two men "made our day!"
