South Section Go south on US 29 to Exit 15 (To Johns Hopkins/Gorman Road, east). At the traffic light at the top of the long exit ramp, turn left on Johns Hopkins and go over US 29 to a traffic circle. Go halfway around the circle and exit (a large green sign says Johns Hopkins Road to Gorman Road). In 0.1 mile turn left on Gorman Road and continue another 0.1 mile to a landscaped triangle. At this point Gorman Road goes right but Kindler Road continues straight. Take Kindler 0.3 mile to a barrier across the road. Park along the road and walk downhill past the gate to reach the trails both east and west along the river.
