Visiting

The Jones Falls Trail is about eleven miles long. You can walk, jog, or bicycle the whole trail or break your trail visit by doing 1 or 2 parts of the trail at a time.  For ease of understanding, we describe the trail in three parts.  If you are doing more than one part, just put the parts together.  There are blazes and signs to help you follow the JFT, but here are directions south to north and north to south.
