Wincopin - Quarry Run Loop, Savage Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A short ramble along the Middle Patuxent River to its confluence with the Little Patuxent River, then upstream, with a return via an abandoned quarry road. Most of the hike follows the streams closely. Within minutes of setting off, you will be transported from one of the most densely populated suburbs in America to a lovely woodland along two former mill streams. Sandwiched between I –95 and US 1, Savage Park is the population epicenter of the Baltimore–Washingon Corridor; however, you would never know it on this hike (except for the intrusion of highway noise in the first 0.5 mile).
Special considerations: The first 0.5 mile of the hike is within loud earshot of I –95, which intrudes upon the remote feeling of the river bottomland. Still, considering it's proximity to the few million residents of the Baltimore-Washington Corridor, it provides a quick escape into the woods. Nearby Savage Mill is a great spot for an after-hike lunch."
