Savage Historic Mill Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Savage Mill Trail in Savage Park travels along the Patuxent River through the grounds of an old cotton mill. In the early 1800s, Savage was a major manufacturing center, harnessing power produced by the falls on the Little and Middle Patuxent Rivers.
Near the trailhead stands an 1822 textile mill, today renovated as a shopping center where you can buy antiques or grab a picnic lunch to enjoy on the pleasant 0.8-mile trail."

"A quiet stream valley walk along the Little Patuxent River, with an upland return on a rail-trail. Anyone living within quick access of I –95 in the Baltimore –Washington Corridor can be out the door and on the trail in less than thirty minutes to enjoy a quiet stroll along the Little Patuxent River. There is not a lot to describe in this hike because it is, after all, a short jaunt through a suburban wood. Still, it is a splendid walk for a late afternoon when you have the desire for a woodland hike but not the time to get away. Special considerations: The rail-trail that pro- vides the return loop is part of a planned path to Elkhorn Lake."
