Patuxent Water Trail

The Patuxent Water Trail is a self-guided paddling trail designed for kayaking and canoeing enthusiasts. It allows paddlers to explore the Patuxent River and experience its beauty, camp along its banks and visit its numerous parks, historic sites, sanctuaries, and refuges. 

The Patuxent Water Trail is a cooperative project by state, county and local government agencies, conservation organizations, volunteer groups, and the business community. The trail can be accessed from many points in several counties along the river.
