I am sharing various photos from our walks on the NCR trail. Also known as Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail or the North Central Rail trail. We can drive to various parking lots for different sections of the trail. The trail is a total of 20 miles from Hunt Valley Md to the Pennsylvania Line.
The mosaic below is using photos taken while walking on the NCR trail in the Parkton area of the Gunpowder State Park.
These perfectly round webs remind me of CD's or DVD's.
I am not sure of this plant's id? Edit, thanks to Marit for the id, the plant id is Phlox paniculata.

The Gunpowder River
The Cardinal Flowers were seen in a boggy area next to the trail.
These photos are from another day and walk on a different section of the trail called Monkton.
There is a nature center with restrooms, nearby is a store with ice cream and other treats. They also rent tubes for floating down the Gunpowder River.
For Tom's Sign linky party, my photo of various signs around the visitor center and the beginning of the bike trail.
This was our turn around point on the trail, pretty view of a farm and house on the hill. Photo included for Cath's Country Scapes.
A view looking at the trail ahead of us. We walked around 3 miles round trip on this day. The Monkton parking lot to the next road called Blue Mount Rd.
The Scarlet Tanager is a common bird seen in our area in the summer months.
