Douglas Point

The Douglas Point Recreation Area in Charles County, Maryland, offers fantastic opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and mountain biking. Located near fast-paced Washington, D.C., it is one of the last remaining undeveloped tracts along the Potomac River. 

Douglas Point encompasses 548 acres of hardwood forest and marshes, and features picnic areas, river shoreline, an accessible historical walk, and hunting blinds. Douglas Point is also part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail segment and water trail stop. Other unique resources in the general vicinity include the site of a Civil War encampment of approximately 25,000 troops; and archeological sites, habitat for a wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic species, unique wetlands and woodlands, and the evolving ecosystems of the shipwrecks at Mallow Bay.
