Trail
Little Gunpowder Trail

With almost 18,000 acres of parkland and 120 miles of trails, it’s hard to go wrong finding great natural beauty in Gunpowder Falls State Park. For those who want to spend time in the great outdoors without Bear Grylls-like intensity, Little Gunpowder Trail (in the Jerusalem Mill area of the park) is perhaps your best bet. According to the website of the Gunpowder United Mountain Bike Operators, a volunteer group that maps trails throughout the greater park for interested cyclists, the trail’s main loop is two miles and well-suited for all for all levels of bikers, hikers and runners.

Entrance near the Jerusalem Mill Parking Lot, Kingsville. 410-592-2897.

• Items such as iron parts for the mill, farm utensils, and horseshoes were made here.

• The year the building was completed is unknown, but itsconstruction suggests the same
general time period as the miller's house and grist mill, probably in the late 1700s, but
certainly prior to 1804.

• Examination of the stone work on both sides of the building reveals that it was once half its
current depth. The size indicated on the 1860 plat represents the smaller size, indicating
that it was expanded sometime after 1860.
• The Lee family purchased quantities of iron from the Franklinville Iron Works a couple miles
away.
• Succession of blacksmiths since 1894:
 William N. Vogt 1894-1906
 J.A. Bramble 1906-1909
 James Magness 1909-1915
• When the last mill operator, Jack Bridges, died in 1961, he was using the Blacksmith Shop
as his residence, which he had lived in since about 1944. .
• Today, a cadre of local blacksmiths demonstrate their skills, and hand forged ite
available for purchase in the Gift Shop located in McCourtney's Store.

Well as far as things go here in the village, we have hit a slow spot. Our next event in not until April 4.So as moderator or this page I am going to do a bit of selfish self promotion. So that when you visit this page you won't be seeing the same old stuff, I am going to post some of my personal pictures. If you like them, let me know, if they get on your nerves, let me know. So here is the first of many. Enjoy

Hey! My husband lost his phone somewhere between the river and covered bridge. It’s a pixel 4 with a black case and this picture as the lock screen. Please send me a pm if found, cash reward.
If you have lost your keys to a Honda along with what happens to be a mail key and a couple of house keys, I have them. I’m with my 4yo and we are (slowly 🤪) heading back to the main entrance and will figure out a further plan!
Someone playing guitar here recently by the water? 😊 If so..... dude....yes.
The view from my window as a child.
Icy night at the covered bridge.
HELLO ALL!! I found a phone in the middle of the field at Jerusalem Mills on 11/2!!! If anyone is missing a phone please message me!! Please share!
Please keep an eye out for this dog lost in Kingsville. Sightings only please do not chase.
Anyone out in the area swimming or celebrating the holiday please give me a shout if you see my poor dog. I've tracked her for a week through towns all over and she was last seen around here. Were so heartbroken and just want to bring her home! Please do not chase or try to catch her she is terrified. Just call 4437524577!!
Last seen in the mill area!
Tonight's Beach Bumz concert will be at the St. Paul's Parish Hall at 12022 Jerusalem Road

Love the warmth they project for this nostalgic place & my littles 🥰. Looking forward to attending the events they have shared with us ;)
