Hike the Elk Neck State Forest Trails
Maryland › Elk Neck State Forest Parking
Added by The Outbound Collective
Spacious, uncrowded, beautiful loop trail takes you into the forest and offers glimpses of native wildlife.
Park in the lot (see map) and follow signage for the loop trail. This is not a highly trafficked trail so there may be sections that need some maintenance, but that won't get in the way of completing the hike.
- Good shoes
