Centennial Park

If you love water and brilliantly green trees, you’ll enjoy jogging the paths of Centennial Park near the heart of Ellicott City. This park wraps around its own miniature lake with a fishing dock, canoes, and an expansive playground. When you’re ready for a break, take in the views from the pier or enjoy the friendly ducklings paddling around the lake. Leashed pets are also welcome, so be sure to bring your pup along for the afternoon. 

Cascade Falls Trail

Head out to the Cascade Falls trail for an immersive experience among the shaded tree canopies. It is one of the most picturesque jogging trails around Ellicott City. This trail runs the entire Avalon stretch of the park along the Patapsco River. Follow the babbling water along the scenic hiking trail to the Vineyard Springs trail beyond. Dogs are also welcome along the path, including some off-leash areas where they can explore the beautiful surroundings. 

Daniels Road Trail Head

Further north along the Patapsco River, you will find the Daniels Road Trailhead, a delightful hiking trail in the depths of the Patapsco Valley State Park. This route is a great place to hike, jog, or bicycle in the beauty of nature. When the temperatures rise, change into your swimsuit for a cool splash near the dam.
