100 Days of Maryland Summer: Clark’s Elioak Farm


donkey4Have a family fun day on the farm at Clark’s Elioak Farm in Ellicott City.

Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic under the trees in the picnic area, then your kids can ride the cow train or meet the animals in the petting farm. Clark’s is also the new home of many of the attractions from the old Enchanted Forest theme park that was in Ellicott City until the 1980s. Clark’s also offers pony rides and hayrides whenever the farm is open.

While at Clark’s Elioak Farm, visit their petting farm and see a wide variety of animals–goats, sheep, donkeys, pigs, cows, horses, ponies, turkeys, ducks, chickens, bunnies, and an emu. You can feed the animals and visit the Barnyard area where you can touch and pet them.

Their newest attraction is the Enchanted Forest Pine Tree Maze. Follow the twists and turns through our forest of pine trees and discover more Enchanted Forest figures along the way. Find Little Red Riding Hood, Little Boy Blue, Hansel and Gretel, and the Tortoise and the Hare.
