Green Trail at New Germany State Park

This is ideal for beginner hikers. It is fairly flat and follows a native brook trout stream called Poplar Lick. In the winter, it is popular with cross country skiers. Park naturalists lead guided hikes that give you great info about the environment.

New Germany State Park also has a thirteen acre lake with a sandy beach for swimming. Spring through fall, you can rent kayaks, canoes, row boats and stand up paddle boards too.

Swallow Falls State Park Loop

This easy circuit hike is in Swallow Falls State Park. It takes you through a mature hemlock forest along the scenic Youghiogheny River. One of the highlights is Muddy Creek Falls. It is Maryland’s tallest waterfall standing at 53 feet high.

This is a good option when hiking with small children or friends and family that aren’t overly “outdoorsy”. Picnic tables and a pavilion give you a place to have a snack or a packed lunch.

Cranesville Swamp Preserve

Managed by the Nature Conservancy, Cranesville Swam offers a network of 5 different trails including a 1,500 ft. boardwalk. They are all under 2 miles long. Cranesville Swamp is located in a frost pocket. The surrounding hills capture moisture and cold air. So that creates a landscape similar to that found in Canada.

The area is home to over 48 rare plants and animals, including Jacob’s ladder, southern water shrew, and mountain earth snake. Also, there are more than 100 species of birds. Continue reading 5 Easy Deep Creek Lake Hiking Trails
