Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

We will return to the Seneca Creek Greenway Trail, starting our hike from the parking lot on Route 28. We will traverse the wooded bluffs and meadows above Seneca Creek and look for spring ephemerals on the wooded slopes leading down to Black Rock Mill. This stretch of trail has many non-native invasives but also some native plant populations still surviving, along with extensive plantings of native trees. 

We may walk 2-2.5 miles. This hike has some up-and-down walking and moderately steep slopes. Parts of the trail may be wet and muddy. The trail is used by mountain bikers as well as hikers. 

Leader: Marney Bruce and Anne DeNovo



MNPS members only until March 10

Notes: Uphill and downhill walking. Parts of trail are moderately steep and may be muddy. There are no restrooms on site. Closest stop is the shopping center at the intersection of Route 28 and Seneca Road.

Bring: Field guides, water, snack, binoculars if you like, sun or rain protection.

Cancellation Policy: We will go in drizzle or light rain but the trip will be canceled in the event of heavy rain or storms.
