Patapsco Valley State Park off of Route One 5120 South Street Arbutus, 21227

Our second hike of the year will take place at Grist Mill Trail - Swinging Bridges section. Recommended for folks 10 and way over! The trail is asphalt. Bring hardy shoes, water, a hat, lite snack, and suntan lotion as needed. Go .6 miles to Guard Station. At the guard station, if you show your National Park's disability pass, aka Access Pass, for your son or daughter with autism, the fee is waived - otherwise it is three dollars per car load. After leaving the entry gate go .7 miles to a stop sign, make a left, and drive for 1.9 miles. Park near the restrooms where you will see the first swinging Bridge on your right. Our Group will meet there at 1 PM. We will hike over the swinging bridge, make a left on to the grist mill trail, and hike to the next Swinging Bridge (adjacent to Ilchester Road), and then return back to the parking lot. The hike will take roughly 1 hour. Contact John with questions.
