Tuckahoe Creek might be the quietest stream valley in Maryland, offering a rich diversity of trees, terrain, creeks and bogs, and passage through the Adkins Arboretum. Follow the path behind the park office through the field and toward the woods in the distance. At the woods edge are two posts; one leading right to Arboretum Spur Trail, and the other pointing left toward Tuckahoe Creek. Turn right and enter a plantation of loblolly pines. It has been thinned to allow a variety of wildflowers and berry-bearing shrubs to create an understory. A spring runs alongside the trail here. If you take time to explore, you will see fox scat and the furry remains of their prey. Special considerations: As in many other Maryland Parks, there are managed hunting periods during deer season. Check with park office for information.

Light traffic on a weekend. Pet friendly. Well maintained, marked trails with few elevation changes. There were a lot of activities in the park including canoeing, camping, fishing, and arboretum. Great trail worth the drive.
