recreational opportunities such as biking, hiking, birding and fishing. It also

county, the park consists of approximately 2,000 acres of land with a 250-acre

thought of as mountain biking terrain; however, the 7.5-mile course encircling
the lake at St. Mary's River State Park is a little known treasure. This course is also
available for hiking. Park open daily dawn to dusk, Apr. - Oct., and 10 AM -
4 PM, Nov. - March.
St. Mary's County manages 20 county parks. For information on county parks, visit
