Walking Trails at Historic St. Mary's City

Trails Picture

There are over 5 miles of walking trails at Historic St. Mary's City. Approximately 3 miles of paved walkways take visitors between HSMC Visitor Center, the museum's living history exhibits, and through the campus of St. Mary's College of Maryland to St. John's Site Museum. Tickets are required for visitors to the living history areas. Please visit stmaryscity.org for museum hours. Hikers can traverse a rustic 3.2 mile pathway through natural areas without tickets. This trail travels through woods and fields along Milburn Creek and the St. Mary's River and offers numerous opportunities to discover the native flora and fauna of the tidewater region. A brochure with a map and notes on historic and natural features is available at the trail head. The natural trails at HSMC are maintained by a dedicated crew of volunteers and are open daily from dawn to dusk. Both walks begin at the HSMC Visitor Center, 18751 Hogaboom Lane, St. Mary's City. For more information on the trails, exhibits or volunteers, e-mail info@stmaryscity.org or call 240-895-4990 or 800-SMC-1634.
