8 Mile Patuxent Rivers Hike from Savage Mill

  • Savage Mill - Upper Parking Lot


8 Mile Hike Along the Little and Middle Patuxent Rivers in Savage Park

Yet another weekend where the weather isn't going to be great for paddling.  The long range forecast actually has a 40% chance of scattered snow showers for this weekend but that should make this hike all that much more fun.

We'll be hitting the trail promptly at 10:30 from the upper parking lot at Savage Mill for an 8 mile circuit hike along the Little and Middle Patuxent Rivers in Savage Park.  This hike is one of Larry's favorites which is why he is an event host for this Meetup.

Larry says that about half the hike is along either the Little Patuxent River or the Middle Patuxent River.  The area is very hilly and some of them are steep but not very long uphills.  That should make this hike somewhere in the neighborhood of moderate with some strenuous hills.  Pack a snack for a break somewhere around the mid point.

As we are hitting the trail from the Savage Mill Upper Parking lot.  Check out the map above which has been corrected to accurately reflect where that is.  It's a bit of a natual to stop in at the Ram's Head in Savage Mill After the hike for a beer or a coffee and a sandwich or more.  This should be a really great hike and a great time afterwards.
