HASHAWHA ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER


Located in Carroll County MD, Hashawha Environmental Center is home to multi-use trails, fishing, camping and Carroll County's Outdoor School.

"From forests to fields, Hashawha’s trail system offers something for every level of hiker. Trails incluse: The Vista, Stream, Wilderness, Boundary, Warbler and Hickory."

The Vista Trail (marked by white triangles) is 1.2 mile loop around Bear Branch Nature Center. This trail is easy to moderate and ideal for short walks. The Vista Trail passes through wooded areas, skirts farm fields, and leads visitors to the Raptor Mews, the enclosure for Hashawha’s birds of prey.

The Stream Trail (marked by green triangles) is a delight for birders and wildlife-watchers. Beginning at Lake Hashawha, the trail follows Bear Branch Stream before cutting through fields and meadows. The historic Martin Cabin can also be found along the Stream Trail. This trail is approximately 1.8 miles long."

Boundary (a large ~2.5 mile loop around the property boundary, Warbler (a short 1/4 mile downhill trail) and Hickory -- about 1 mile long with both climbs and downhill.

In addition, the Hashawha trail system is combined with even more trails via the Union Mills "Reservoir" and the Union Mills Equestrian Center. When combined with these two trail systems there are well over 12 miles of trail riding to be had at various levels of riding.
