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 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.
