Well-maintained, interesting hikes. We drove down from Baltimore (about an hour). There's a good variety of light trail types, from boardwalk to stairs. Saw many varieties of mushrooms, a couple kinds of frogs, eagle, salamander, and wildflowers. On the trails that we explored near the Jug Bay visitors center, there are a couple of blinds for bird watching, interesting wetlands, and an old beaver pond where you can see the dam and at least one clearly beaver-felled tree. It's worth walking behind the visitors center to see their experiments and turtle area. Plenty of shade. We saw a fair number of people (almost all with masks), but spaced out enough that it was quiet. $6 per car. We'll be back.

Great day out from DC! This place was great and a perfect respite from DC amid the pandemic. You can walk as little or as much as you want - we ended up doing a 6-7 mile walk through the marsh area, the yellow trail and combining that with the beech trail for a big loop that took us through both wetlands and forest. At the end we stopped to have our picnic lunch at an eating spot near the farm, which was perfect. Bring everything you need with you as there is nothing available there. Also, bring bug spray - the mosquitos especially in the longer forested trail were big and hungry! There were very few people and everyone was respectful enough to wear a mask if they were coming within 30 feet of someone else.

Was a great day for hiking. Several trails which can be walked separately or combined for longer walks. I did a 3-mile hike today. Signage was excellent. That’s critical in the Fall with leaves covering the trails. Not suitable for wheelchairs and bikes are not permitted. Restrooms available at the visitor center. Canoe launch site as well.

Cute little trail, we traveled a mile with small children and a stroller and saw evidence of birds, we found beautiful feathers, saw fish and crayfish and evidence of muskrats and beavers. There are lots of boardwalks that bring you right in the middle of nature. On one I was covered in ladybugs after I passed through some brush. It was fun and I would come again to try more stuff!

We came here on a Saturday morning. There are a lot of nice trails and boardwalks through the marsh area. We saw osprey and frogs and snakes. It was a really nice time and I'd recommend this for families wanting to explore the outdoors.
