This Charles County park is open from 8 a.m. until dusk (weather permitting). Features include about 14 miles of diverse hiking trails; open fields, wooded areas, steep terrain, shoreline, beach rest locations, and a trail course.
Numerous old barns are along the north side of the driveway. The first barn is a tobacco barn with hand-hewn horizontal clapboards along the east wall. It is constructed with pegs and is approximately 200 years old. The second is a very large tobacco barn with attached stripping shed′ built partly with pegs′ but remodeled in the 1920’s. Smaller barns were originally used as stables. The small shed near the house was built in the 1920’s for use as a meat house.
There are six (6) main trails at Maxwell Hall Park, about 14 miles of hiking trails. These trails are marked and well maintained and offer an enjoyable and challenging experience for novice and experienced hikers alike. Novice hikers will enjoy traveling along the edge of field/woods areas (Red and Blue trails). Both the Red and Blue trail lead to the Patuxent River which features rest locations. More experienced hikers can find creek crossings, bridges, moderate/steep inclines/declines on the Orange, Brown and Green trails.
Our trails are open to equestrians as well. Dogs are permitted but must be on a leash at all times. Bicycles and all forms of motorized vehicles (dirt bikes/ ATVs) are not allowed.
