Gambrill State Park

Gambrill has over 16 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.

All trails begin at the Trailhead Parking Lot on Gambrill Park Road, between the Rock Run area and the High Knob area.

Many of the trails feature great views. Due to the rocky terrain and steep hills, most of the trails are rated moderate to difficult. However, the White Oak Trail is an easy one-mile loop trail, which makes it a good choice for families with small children.

Pets are allowed on the trails, but must be kept on a leash at all times.

All trails close at sunset.

All trails are open to horseback riding with the exception of the White Oak Trail, which is restricted to hiking. Parking for horse trailers is limited. The Maryland Park Service does not rent horses, and only provides the trails as a means of recreation.
