Susquehanna State Park [Maryland]

We ventured out this past weekend to a new hiking trail! I had heard about this hike from this blog post by Adventure Inspired. Supposedly, bald eagles like to hang out near the Connowingo Dam in the winter looking for fish. We have hiked (and kayaked) along the Susquehanna River on the Pennsylvania side, but we have never crossed over to Maryland. I am glad we did!

Right off of I-95, Susquehanna State Park is gorgeous– and we were there in the dead of winter. The rocky crags and the river are beautiful. Some locals recommended that we hop on the trail at the Stafford Flint Furnace. From there it is about 2.5 miles along the river to the dam. The trail is flat and wide, and it was quite busy for a chilly Sunday afternoon.

We saw three bald eagles along the hike. Please forgive my amateur-iphone-camera. I think we even saw one poop– Shawn’s highlight, of course. Mowgli loved every minute of the trail– and slept all the way home. It was a great adventure all around.
