Hike the Patuxent Branch Trail

Maryland Patuxent Branch Trail Parking

Added by

A peaceful hike by the Little Patuxent river--hike as  much as 9 miles or go for a shorter distance on this out-and-back. 

Park in the lot by Savage Park to access this trail. Great for families, birding, and biking. This trail is accessible from May until October.
