Greenwell State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Take a swim in the river after a walk along the western shore of Maryland’s Patuxent River. The trail travels through fields, meadows and woods, and offers dramatic views of the river, with visits to two historic barns. The Patuxent River is the star of this hike. Here the river is wide and the views it offers are downright dramatic. The hike visits three coves, one with a sandy beach. Greenwell’s trails take you through a variety of settings typical of traditional rural St. Mary’s County. In a nod to local recreational preferences, the land is managed primarily for game wildlife and hunting. Open fields separated by hedgerows and stream valley woodlands predominate. These open fields offer hikers a welcome change of view, a chance to see many birds you miss on a forest hike. The delightful surprises include two historic barns left alone far from anywhere for hikers to discover. Special considerations: Some trails are closed to hikers during hunting season; check with the park office."
