Well-maintained, interesting hikes. We drove down from Baltimore (about an hour). There's a good variety of light trail types, from boardwalk to stairs. Saw many varieties of mushrooms, a couple kinds of frogs, eagle, salamander, and wildflowers. On the trails that we explored near the Jug Bay visitors center, there are a couple of blinds for bird watching, interesting wetlands, and an old beaver pond where you can see the dam and at least one clearly beaver-felled tree. It's worth walking behind the visitors center to see their experiments and turtle area. Plenty of shade. We saw a fair number of people (almost all with masks), but spaced out enough that it was quiet. $6 per car.

We'll be back.

Great day out from DC! This place was great and a perfect respite from DC amid the pandemic. You can walk as little or as much as you want - we ended up doing a 6-7 mile walk through the marsh area, the yellow trail and combining that with the beech trail for a big loop that took us through both wetlands and forest. At the end we stopped to have our picnic lunch at an eating spot near the farm, which was perfect. Bring everything you need with you as there is nothing available there. Also, bring bug spray - the mosquitos especially in the longer forested trail were big and hungry! There were very few people and everyone was respectful enough to wear a mask if they were coming within 30 feet of someone else.

Was a great day for hiking. Several trails which can be walked separately or combined for longer walks. I did a 3-mile hike today. Signage was excellent. That’s critical in the Fall with leaves covering the trails. Not suitable for wheelchairs and bikes are not permitted. Restrooms available at the visitor center. Canoe launch site as well.

Cute little trail, we traveled a mile with small children and a stroller and saw evidence of birds, we found beautiful feathers, saw fish and crayfish and evidence of muskrats and beavers. There are lots of boardwalks that bring you right in the middle of nature. On one I was covered in ladybugs after I passed through some brush. It was fun and I would come again to try more stuff!

We came here on a Saturday morning. There are a lot of nice trails and boardwalks through the marsh area. We saw osprey and frogs and snakes. It was a really nice time and I'd recommend this for families wanting to explore the outdoors.

This is a wonderful place to explore. When you come into the visitor center you are welcomed by friendly staff, there is much to do in the visitor center for kids of all ages. Then the trails lead you out to a incredible overlook of the river and down to the river. The trails are well maintained and easy for all ages!

Very nice well-marked and maintained not too challenging trails of various lengths through research area for wetlands ecology on the east side of the Patuxent River's Jug Bay. Small rustic visitor's center with good information and nice rest rooms. Simple but interesting interactive exhibits. Viewing stations for wildlife and signage at points of interest. Small fee. Be warned that this is a swamp in Southern Maryland and in the summer it will be hot and humid and there will be mosquitoes, ticks, gnats and biting flies. Prepare yourselves accordingly. Good for outdoor-inclined kids and adults. I am constantly amazed that so many beautiful and remote areas are within minutes of Washington DC. This is particularly remote and a bit difficult to find, a dirt road is involved. Check the website for directions. For a great wetland ecology weekend, pair this with the Patuxent River Jug Bay Sanctuary on the western side of the river, which I've reviewed separately. Lots of fast food in Upper Marlboro, local seafood all over, go toward DC or Annapolis for lodging choices.

I have been here many times--hiking on my own, with friends or family, or hikes organized by the Sanctuary. I also love to take photos here and participate in their unique educational programs. It is an amazing resource. The welcome center has some exhibits that my son began to appreciate even when he was only months old. I think we will continue to enjoy the Jug Bay wetlands for years to come.

I took my three year old sons to Jug Bay, looking for a place where my littles could explore outside. I was so happy with my choice!!

We started off in the visitors center where we found clean bathrooms, some animals to see and a touch table. Nothing to write home about. But on the porch of the visitors center we found a sand table that has turtle shells and all kinds of animal print molds that you could track in the sand. THAT was a hit.

There is a nice little nature playground behind the visitor's center - there is even a little boat to climb in!

But then, the hiking. That's what we really came for. The visitor's center has a great map you can ask for to help you choose your trails (or you can download it before you go). I chose to do the boardwalk trail first, which takes you right out over the water and doesn't have railings and sometimes I was terrified my crazy boys would plunge into the water, but they didn't :)

From the boardwalk trail we hopped onto the Otter Point Trail for a little while before jetting over to the Railroad Bed Trail. My goal was to get to the river but about halfway through I knew we wouldn't make it AND get all the way back to the nature center without serious problems so my new goal was to make it to the Scrub Shrub boardwalk and observation blind, and we did :)

Once we made it back to the Otter Point Trail we took that all the way to Otter Point where we did not see any actual otters but we had a nice snack and the swamp blind was awesome. Along the way we saw so much wildlife! Frogs were hopping everywhichwhere which thrilled my boys to no end.

From there we took Two Run Trail past the beaver pond and we saw beaver HOMES and we saw TURTLES but no beavers, but not for lack of looking :) There were several benches where we stopped to watch and rest, which was nice.

Then, the utility road back home. We saw other trails branching off that the boys actually said they wanted to try but I could tell that we'd hit our limit - two hours of hiking! We made it back to the nature center where there are lots of picnic tables but they were filled with a field trip and so we made ourselves comfy on the grass in the shade.

THIS PLACE IS A WIN. SUPER CLEAN. SUPER well marked trails. LOTS of wildlife to spot. Because we counted, in our visit we saw:

8 turtles (two were little ones we almost stepped on)
1 toad
4 frogs
1 lizard
1 osprey
1 Egret
and countless other birds :)

We loved it!
