MD State Route 24 at Cherry Hill Road. ADC Map, Page 9, Coord H4.
This is more of a nice place than a hike.
I parked near the entrance to the 4-H Camp. (Just across the Cherry Hill Bridge). There is a "No Parking" sign on the downhill side of the entrance, but more than enough room to park on the uphill side without restricting entrance to the 4-H facility.
The area between Route 24 and Deer Creek, a very narrow slice, is part of Rocks State Park. This extends from Cherry Hill Road, south for nearly 3/4 of a mile.
Deer Creek was relatively low the day I walked this and I found I was able to make considerable progress downstream by walking on substantial gravel and sand bars. When the river is high, I think it would be difficult to negotiate the puckerbrush.
Although close to the road, I found exploring the gravel near the creek and sitting near the water amidst the steep hills sloping down to the creek very peaceful.
It appears there may be a trail on the opposite side. However, this is private property.
A word of caution. Walking along Route 24 is dangerous, particularly at the hard curve near the Cherry Hill Bridge.
The bridge itself is interesting.
