  • Really great park! Tons of trails (paved and non paved). Great, easy walk all along the river if you want or you can dip off on one of the loop trails through the woods. You even get to walk through a tunnel on one trail! Multiple spots to park and hike in. Also have a playground for kids! Would recommend to anyone looking for a day out in the sunshine!
  • Great place for a day out and fun activities. I recently visited this place while my visit to Maryland and was amazed and amused to see natural beauty of the area. This park is a huge one consisting of acres and acres. There is a lot of space for BBQ and it has a hiking trail as well. The parking is sufficient and kids play area is good enough to keep kids busy.
