The Patapsco Fun Series

The Patapsco Fun Series is back in 2023!

We are building trails and building community in the Patapsco Valley!

We work closely with park management to build multi-use trails. All trail alignments go through a rigorous review process by the Department of Natural Resources and the Maryland Park Service.

Our trailwork days are popular! Patapsco Valley State Park volunteers represent all users, all ages, and all abilities – we are proud of our HARD work and our diverse community!

The Bloede Dam Trail Extension is on a steep side slope, high above the Patapsco River.
Volunteers build sustainable trails for every user!
Hard work and big smiles!
Each year the Mountain Club of Maryland supports trail work at PVSP! The hiking community plays a huge part in building and maintaining trails in the park.
Building trails and building community!

Patapsco Valley State Park is nationally known for its trail opportunities and scenery. We have over 220 miles of trails, and one of the most engaged volunteer communities in the U.S.! 

The Patapsco Fun Series is supported by our sponsors!

Trail Work at Patapsco Valley State Park is a big production with park users from all walks of the valley.  Each year we log over 4000 hours of volunteer trail work in what is one of the country’s largest trail work series.  We welcome all users, all ages and abilities!

Hard work, killer trails!
We work closely with the Maryland Conservation Corp.
