Hoping Wednesday evening will be dry. Looks now like Wednesday will be the least chance of rain, of the evenings this week that I am available.
This walk takes a little less than an hour if we do the Red Trail and about an hour and 15 minutes if we do the Green Trail.
Wincopin Trails off Vollmerhausen Road
A nice Google MAP - http://tinyurl.com/WincopinTrailMap
Info from Howard County about these trails (website says a trail map is coming soon):
- These are unpaved trails, with some rocks and branches creating an uneven surface.
- I recommend sturdy sneakers or hiking boots/trail shoes. If your dog likes to take a dip in the river, there are many places where they can get wet!!!
- Bring water for you and your dog and waste pickup bags.
The parking lot for the Wincopin trails of Savage Park is located on Vollmerhausen Road, a short distance downhill from the Patuxent Valley Middle School. If you're using a GPS or Mapquest, you can get there by entering: 9271 Vollmerhausen Road, Jessup MD.
If you're coming from Savage-Guilford Road, it is a little parking lot on your Left. If you are coming from Murray Hill Road it is a little parking lot on your right.
