Beautiful and remote boardwalk hike that will put your mind at ease. 

Park at the end of Park Entrance Road (see map) to access the trail. Great place for birding, trail running, and sea kayaking. Dogs are not permitted, so leave your canine friends at home or choose a different hike.

Patuxent River Park Trail

Very pretty, scenic and serene trail...easy and well-marked with many water features and overlooks. Features a 19th century slave cabin.
