Patapsco Valley State Park – Hilton Area
1101 Hilton Ave
Catonsville, MD 21228
State Park: Bike, Camp, Hike, Picnic, Playground, Walk
The Hilton Area is located off of Hilton Avenue in Catonsville. A popular spot for afternoon walks and morning workouts, the trails are active with local residents and far away visitors. The Hilton Area is a cool place for families with a playground for children and a nature center. Seasonal interpretive programs meet at the nature center offering activities for young park visitors. One of the most unique features in this area can be found along the Sawmill Branch Trail – the trail actually takes you boulder hopping in the stream. Many of the trails in Patapsco have stream crossings that are just stepping stones, no bridges, so the hiker might get some wet feet on occasion. This area also has a small campground with six mini-cabins and 12 basic campsites. Mountain Bikers will enjoy the challenges presented along the Santee Branch Trail as it connects with more challenging trails in this section of the park and in the Glen Artney, Avalon, and Orange Grove areas of the park. Hilton is a place for kids of all ages to play and explore.
