Patuxent Watertrail Navigation Map (Non-Waterproof Edition)
(Non waterproof edition) The Patuxent Riverkeeper is pleased to offer the first edition of the new Patuxent River Water Trail Guide and GPS-ready Map. It is an in-depth navigational guide to paddling over 100 miles of waterways in central and southern MD. The most detail, ideal for hikers, bikers, birders, horseback riders, orienteers, geocachers, fisherman, or nature lovers, is for the Mid-river section where nearly all 9000 contiguous public riverfront acres are mapped with every trail and stream bend shown.
For boaters and paddlers, this comprehensive Patuxent Water Trail guide covers the river from the mouth near Solomons up through the Howard-Montgomery County reservoirs, with detailed descriptions of all 60 points of interest, water trail campsites, and access points. Two by 2.5 feet, two-sided.
This is the first such detailed guide/map for paddlers for the whole river. Its arrival is timely with the 2008-9 official opening of the Patuxent Water Trail and campsites. Included is a GPS grid and/or coordinates, web instructions for tides, river levels, reservations info, costs, hours, parking availability, driving directions, distances of carries at put-ins, etc. “Local knowledge” is included in the text boxes on all 60 sites on the water trail map, as the cartographer has personally visited every site recently. The map even depicts public vs. private and marsh vs. “solid” shorelines! A special inset map highlights navigational challenges amidst the many channels of the Bowie to Central Ave. non-tidal section.
