Wildlife Lovers Paridise - Herons, Egrets, Wood Ducks, Deer, Eagles The hike is short but the scenery is terrific. In one trip around, I saw three Great Blue Herons, a few wood ducks, a ringed neck duck, deer, geese and turtles. You may also see egrets, bald eagles and other wildlife. It starts at the visitor center for the Patuxent National Wildlife refuge, near Beltsville, Md. Trails are very well marked and you can get a trail map inside the visitor center. This is a great family outing. The visitor center is well worth checking out. There are binoculars and spotting scopes for observing the wildlife. Bringing you own is a good idea for the hike. 256 wild bird species have been spotted in the refuge. Ask the help desk about the north tract.

My dog and I decided to explore this stroll/hike..Having lived in Hawaii and hiking, I didn't expect much.

The hike was surprisingly pleasant, I enjoyed the scenery, peaceful and it was clean.
The weather was beautiful, and the trail is marked very well, you cannot get lost. you can also get a map right at the beginning of the hikes.
parking was also good, but on a day when it's really full, I can see the space running out quick, not a lot of space.

Negetive is that there is no trash can anywhere to put dog waste..and that just didn't make sense to me.

For someone who isn't looking for anything strenuous and long..this could work.

If your looking for a challenge, this isn't a good one. Good place for kids, walking your dog or just out for a stroll.

it's a nice maintained trail. If you take the fire road around you can turn it into a 5 mile hike with a little hilly section in the back.
