This well-maintained trail links the Daniels area into the trails just north of Ellicott City. At the south end, tie into the "Old Ranger Trail", when you get to the in-park road go south through the camp area and pick up the gravel road continuing south. This links into paved roads leading to the Patapsco Female Institute and from there down into old Ellicott City.

The trail starts just uphill of the railroad tracks - there is no reason to ride on the tracks.
