Rachel Carson Conservation Park is about 2.3 miles long and located near Flintridge, Maryland. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes 1-3 hours.
This hidden gem is densely populated by numerous species of wildlife, high quality forest and features spectacular rock and massive boulder out-cropping throughout the park.
This area remains undeveloped for some of the best hiking trails around! The Hawlings River passes through the park and almost the entire hike is along this beautiful river.
