The park has 19.5 miles of marked trails that wander through the quiet forests of Prince George’s and Charles Counties, past pine plantations planted by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The Holly Trail wanders through wooded paths along marshy areas lined with holly, magnolia, and other plants and flowers. The trail is well marked; follow the orange signposts and blazes. The trail is relatively flat, but you should wear appropriate footwear, as it is often muddy. The Holly Trail is the longest in the park. Shorter hiking options are available, with routes that are 2–4 miles. All trails are shared by hikers, bikers, and equestrians. Watch out for horse manure.
