Summer Fun, Day 18: Head out on the Patuxent Branch Trail

You can hike or bike the Patuxent Branch Trail with your family which features two places to explore at either end.

The Patuxent Branch trail is a moderate 4.6-mile trail is part of a larger 20-mile trail system that winds through Howard County.

You can start in historic Savage Mill in Savage to traverse through a landscape that includes 10 different bridges such as the 1902 Guilford Pratt Truss Bridge, an old railroad bridge that crosses the Little Patuxent River.

At the other end of the journey, is Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, where you can stop for a picnic or walk/bike around the lake.

You could also use the lake as a starting point to explore historic Savage Mill at the other end of the trail, where you can take a self-guided walking tour around the old Mill town.
