This park is one of Montgomery County’s Best Natural Areas and includes mature upland forest, floodplain forest, diverse wildlife and grand views of the Potomac River and C&O Canal.  Walk with Carrie Blair to discover swelling tree buds, which offer so much information with color changes; scales opening, and tiny flowers emerging on trees and shrubs.  Moderate hike with somewhat steep slopes.
