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.

No Clear Paths

For someone looking to do some light mileage this trail was quite unpleasant. No clear signage or paths longer than .2 miles.
