2022 Walk for the Woods Scheduled for April 30th

The Scenic Rivers Land Trust has once again partnered with the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks to host Walk For The Woods, a day of guided hikes and public access to the Bacon Ridge Natural Area, which is County-owned but currently not completely open to the public. This is a relaxing day of enjoying our local woods!

Registration for the guided hikes and other activities is now open! Be sure to grab your spot early—popular hikes will fill up fast.

The lineup of guided hikes is being led throughout the day by experts in wildlife, native plants, birds, and more—including a new Nature Photography Hike.

Advanced registration is recommended, but not required. Hikes will be limited to a maximum of 25 participants. A few spots on each hike will be reserved for “walk in” registrations on the day of the event.
