This 7.8-mile natural surface trail offers views of the Great Seneca Creek, traverses beautiful upland woodlands, provides a spectacular overlook of the stream valley and includes a natural rock bridge near Watkins Mill Road. Historic points of interest include the former sites of Middlebrook Mills and the Watkins Mill. The mill race associated with Watkins Mill can still be seen.

This trail is part of the larger Seneca Creek Greenway Trail (SCGT), planned as a 25 mile greenway connection between the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers. The lower section of the trail, located in Seneca Creek State Park south of MD 355, is 16.2 miles in length.

Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are “Shared by All” trails which includes hikers, bikers, and equestrians.
