High limestone bluffs above an S shaped bend in the Potomac River below Snyders Landing make this a beautiful site. In addition to the spring wildflower display in the moist canal bed and bottomlands, the cool north-facing bluffs have calcium loving wild flowers and ferns not commonly found in Maryland.

Leaders: Marney Bruce and Anne DeNovo


Registration for MNPS members only through April 10, 2018.

Notes: Easy walking along the towpath but very steep trails up to the ridge and back down to the towpath. Rock scrambling, may be slippery and muddy.

Bring: Field guides, water, snack, binoculars if you like, sun and 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.
