One of Maryland’s largest and most unique state parks is right under our noses, here at WLOY, and a visit to it will surely fill any person with peace of mind. Established in 1959 to protect the Gunpowder River, Gunpowder Falls State Park is now comprised of over 18,000 acres in Harford and Baltimore counties. The park features more than 120 miles of hiking trails, for the most novice to most experienced hikers; a swimming beach; a marina; and streams for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Plus, a favorite summer activity of many is to just grab an inner tube and float down the river. Could you think of a more perfect way to cool off? The park is pet friendly so an outing here can turn into an endeavor for the whole family! Want to explore the great outdoors without going too far from the city, then head over to Gunpowder Falls State Park!
