Walk for the Woods

Walk for the Woods is Scenic Rivers Land Trust’s signature community event celebrating the joy of the outdoors and our local, protected woods.

Scenic Rivers will again partner with Anne Arundel County’s Department of Recreation and Parks to offer a wonderful opportunity to hike and explore this beautiful wilderness just minutes from downtown Annapolis. Bacon Ridge Natural Area’s 1,000+ acres are graced with upland streams, lily-filled ponds, nesting birds, and spring wildflowers.

Experts in wildlife, native plants, birds, and more will be on-site and available to attendees. Plus, self-guided hike options will be offered, complete with trail maps and educational signage posted along the trails. Hikes range from 1 to 4 miles, vary in degree of difficulty, and are on marked trails.

Registration for guided hikes will open approximately three weeks before the event. The hike schedule and link to registration will be announced via email and social media.

Rain date is May 1.
