Kendall Trail Description

The little-known Kendall Trail extends 2 miles south from the tiny community of Friendsville, Maryland, to the ruins of the former logging town of Kendall. The trail offers expansive views of the Youghiogheny River, which it parallels for most of its winding route. Engulfed in dense woodlands, the shady trail occupies an abandoned narrow gauge railroad corridor.

The trail is supported by the Friendsville Trails Alliance, whose members regularly support and maintain the local gem.

Kendall Trail Reviews

Bigger than it seems

This trail is actually closer to 6 miles. After getting to the small clearing where the railroad hub for Kendall used to be, follow trail across the small stream and continue the trail more than four more miles. The trail follows the Yough, and begins to peter out near a boulder field local kayakers call Devil's Graveyard. Great scenery. Few boggy areas. Try the local diner after a 12 miles round trip. Pros- scenery of both forest and river, easy grade, pet friendly. Con- last three miles are very rocky so watch your ankles, while you're at it- watch for snakes too
