At Patapsco Valley State Park we are working hard to be inclusive of our visitors who may have special needs while enjoying PVSP – we are very excited to have new partnerships with organizations who have experience and equipment to make the park accessible to every user!

Our adaptive paddling program Paddle the Patapsco is being produced with Kennedy Krieger, Team River Runner and Baltimore Canoe and Kayak Club.

Adaptive Mountain Biking


We are very proud to announce that we have the approval to construct the first Adaptive Mountain Biking loop in a Maryland State Park! This trail is specifically designed to get our adaptive athletes on the incredible natural surface trail system at PVSP.

These hand crank bicycles provide opportunities for our adaptive athletes.
Our partners at Catalyst Sports are experts at accessibility!
PVSP is a community of all users and all abilites!
