Herring Run Trail Description

Baltimore’s Herring Run Trail runs through scenic Herring Run Park, centered on a tributary of the Back River. The winding trail follows Herring Run through a woodlands environment so peaceful you're likely to forget you are in a major city just steps from busy US 1.

The trail offers a great opportunity for spotting wildlife, including the foxes, hawks and other fowl that call the park home. Off the trail, Herring Run Park features baseball diamonds, soccer fields and open space for other types of recreation or picnics.

Herring Run Park is also adjacent to Lake Montebello, a scenic reservoir with an encircling roadway. Cross Harford Road to pick up the dedicated on-road bicycle and pedestrian lanes, which are safely separated from traffic on the south side of the lake by planters in a concrete island.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Herring Run Trail is available along the entrance road for Herring Run Park off Harford Road/State Route 147. Access the trail from under the Harford Road bridge.

Herring Run Trail Reviews

An enjoyable ride in the city. The path led through a wooded area where a deer walked right in front of me. Neat that it was so close to our house on Rueckert.

I enjoyed the ride. Started with a lap around Lake Montebello and picked up the trail by crossing the street (Hartford Rd). We have hybrid bikes and wouldn't recommend riding with anything else. Would definitely do it again however trail maintenance appears to be an issue. The last portion of the trail (behind the post office/industrial type area) was littered with a significant amount of broken glass.
