Tried the trail this past Sunday, after the Tour Du Port.
You're right about bad signage around the stadium. And all the people arriving for the Ravens game didn't help. Finally found the right roads, crossed Russell and I was fine after that. Went a little past where Windsor Mill crosses the creek, but I was running late and couldn't ride to the end of the trail.
Pretty past Carol Park. Good condition, easy ride, only a couple of climbs, nice woods. Almost no one using it. In five miles up and back from Carol Park, I saw only a dozen bikes and peds. Good for me, cause I like the quiet, but too bad that more people don't use such a good trail.
The Falls were a disappointment. Four feet is not much of a falls. Still, it was a pretty spot to stop and eat.
Saw three deer on the road down from Windsor Mill, and a woodchuck near the ballfield.
Even the urban parts weren't bad once I figured out where the bike route was. Will definitely ride this one again.
