The Gunpowder Wine Trail runs from Northern Baltimore County through the countryside of Harford County and the city of Havre de Grace, at the mouth of the Susquehanna. Along the trail, you’ll find unique local points of interest like Kilgore Falls and Rocks State Park. Restaurants abound with a range of choices and visitors often extend their stay at one of the many bed & breakfasts, inns, or hotels along the way.
