Activities in Deep Creek Lake, MD

Local Activities in Deep Creek Lake, MD


(estimated March 16 through June 15)

Spring in Garrett County is sometimes referred to as “mud-season” with the spring rains and snowmelt, things are wet. That’s not a bad thing as many local rivers and waterfalls will be running at their highest and are quite a sight to see. The spring flowers and greenery beginning to show makes for some truly amazing scenes and experiences. Have you been hunting for ramps or morels yet? We say “estimated” season dates above since the forecasters are never surprised when we get an April snow.

Garrett County spring brings a new awakening and there’s no better place to enjoy it than Deep Creek Lake: outside with your family.

Here is our insight into Deep Creek Lake, MD area spring “things to do” and activities:


Hike to three waterfalls, enjoy the tranquility of nature, explore history markers, or “just” get your exercise in today.

Swallow Falls State Park

301-387-6938 | Swallow Falls State Park

8 a.m. to sunset, year-round


Swallow Falls State Park is the site of four unique waterfalls including the state’s highest free-falling waterfall Muddy Creek Falls. Be sure to take the trek and see all four; can you find them all on the map?

NOTE: Pets are not permitted in the day-use area or on the Canyon Trail between the Saturday before Memorial Day and Labor Day (summer season). At other times of the year, pets are permitted.

Pets are allowed in the campground and pets are allowed on trails that connect with the state forest. Pets must remain on a leash and under control at all times.

New Germany State Park

sssss301-895-5453​ | New Germany State Park

8 a.m. to sunset, year-round


New Germany is one of my favorite local state parks because of the dense hemlock forest, rhododendron-choked stream valleys and towering pine and spruce plantation sites.

There are over ten miles of multi-use trails; take a mountain bike ride through here and you’ll see what I mean about this park being a favorite!

There is also a small sandy beach and a swimming area.

In the winter, the park staff grooms and tracks the trail surface for cross-country skiing. 

Herrington Manor State Park

301-334-9180 | Herrington Manor State Park

8 a.m. to Sunset (March – October)
10 a.m. to Sunset (November – February)


Herrington Manor was designated as a state park in 1964. The 365-acre park, located within Garrett State Forest, offers swimming, canoeing, kayaking, biking, picnicking, hiking, tennis, basketball, volleyball and 20 furnished log cabins for rental use year round.

This park is in my “backyard” here in Oakland and I love having this asset so close to home. I spend a few days a week here!

Garrett State Forest

301-334-2038 | Potomac-Garrett State Forest

Office Hours: 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.


Garrett State Forest is home to the Rock Maze trail. Turn off of Swallow Falls Road, on to Cranesville Road, then on to Snaggy Mountain Road. The parking lot is immediately to your right and the maze trail is straight ahead from the parking. The trail is approximately 0.8 miles.**We have heard that the signage marking this trail has been removed due to vandalism.**

A donation of 1,917 acres by the Garrett Brothers in 1906 serves as the foundation of the Garrett State Forest but is the root of both Maryland’s present Public Lands system and Forest Service. The Potomac-Garrett State Forest has the distinction of being the birthplace of forestry conservation in Maryland.

Cranesville Swamp

 301-897-0858 | Cranesville Swamp


Cranesville Swamp is a remarkable site protected by The Nature Conservancy, with more than 600 acres held in trust in perpetuity. It was one of the first National Natural Landmarks to be designated by the National Park Service in 1965.

The swamp is a unique boreal peat bog relic formed 15,000 years ago during the last Ice Age and the boardwalk takes visitors through one of the few remaining southern United States boreal bog sites. Hikers can see rare and endangered species like the Southern water shrew and the Nashville warbler and species of dragonflies and butterflies. Also, pockets of virgin forest and rare plants like the Endangered American larch and creeping snowberry are found here as well.

Meshach Browning Trails

Maintained by the Deep Creek Lake Lions Club | Meshach Browning Trails


The trail system opened in January 2019 and the Deep Creek Lake Lions’ Club continues to maintain and expand the system.

Here’s a link to the signage depicting the history along the trails.

Kendall Trail

301-746-5919 | Kendall Trail


Visitors can now hike two miles from town to Kendall (and beyond) on the old railroad bed into the Youghiogheny River Wild and Scenic Corridor. Youghiogheny is a Shawnee name (YO-WAH-HO-NAY) for “river that flows in a contrary direction” (locals call it the “YAWK”).

The Yough is a gem in Garrett County and known as a world-class whitewater river.

The town of Kendall was on the west side of the river at Laurel Run. You must wade the river to get to it. So be wary of dam releases! Little remains, except for a few overgrown foundations and perhaps the spirit of a town and residents long gone.

Fork Run Recreation Area

Fork Run Recreation Area



Red-1.75 mi
Gray Trail-1.44 mi
Green-2.3 mi
Beige-1.4 mi
Orange-.45 mi
(Distances are approximate)

Ranging from 2100-2700’ in elevation on the west side of Marsh Hill Mountain, the Fork Run Recreation Area lies in the Allegheny Mountains of Garrett County – the highest region in Maryland. The higher elevation of this region results in temperatures that are cooler than those of lower areas to the east and west. The higher mountains also intercept moisture-laden air masses moving into the region from the west, so this area is wetter as well. The consequence is a climate more similar to that of the Great Lakes or New England and a species list that includes plants and animals more commonly found several hundred miles to the north. The bedrock under the recreation area consists primarily of sandstone and shale resulting in soils that are typically rocky and acidic.

A variety of wildlife can be found along the Fork Run trail system, although many species are not readily observed. Two common larger mammals that may be encountered are white-tailed deer and black bear, and smaller mammals such as chipmunks and squirrels can often be seen. Wild turkey, ruffed grouse, a variety of birds of prey, woodpeckers, and many species of songbirds may be seen or heard. Several reptiles and amphibians, including eastern garter snake, red-backed salamander, and American toad, may also be found.

Note to Hikers: You are in the Back Country. Cell phone contact is generally not available. Emergency medical care may be delayed or not available. DO NOT TRAVEL ALONE.

Fat-Tire Biking

“Fat” tires on a mountain bike frame allow you to float over the trails … low tire pressure allows riding on more soft terrains.

Dan's Mountain State Park

This is a very fun and intentional mountain bike trail!

Here’s more information on the route and the current status:


Broad Ford Lake

The organizers have done everything right with this trail system. Small but mighty features for beginners but through experienced riders.

Road Biking

Garrett County offers many winding secondary roads that are more-lightly traveled and offer spectacular views, challenging climbs, and the perfect exercise outlet.

*Note: Ride at your own risk and obey all riding laws

Garrett County Gran Fondo

This is one of the most fun group ride events in my opinion! But feel free to set out on your own throughout the spring or summer. The roads are marked in yellow and click here for ride cue sheets

The “Diabolical Double” – The Diabolical Double is renowned for its extreme challenge on par with European climbing classics like Etape du Tour and the classic Italian Gran Fondos. With 203K (126.2 miles) distance and over 16,500 feet of climbing, this ride is not for the faint of heart, as it pushes even the fittest riders to their limits. Those who have conquered the Diabolical Double consider it the toughest single-day ride they have ever experienced.

The “Savage Century” – the Savage Century is an extremely challenging century ride, and with 105.8 miles and over 12,500 feet of climbing it is likely the hardest century ride in North America. I’ve not taken on this challenge… yet!

The “Masochistic Metric” – the Masochistic Metric is one-half the distance with one-half the climbing of the Diabolical Double at 64.8 miles and over 8000 feet of climbing.

The “Fabulous 44” – The Fabulous 44 is an excellent option for anyone looking for a longer, more challenging ride than the “Garrett’s Greatest 25” and wants a taste of the extremity of the three longer rides, but does not want to undertake the extreme challenge of the 100K, 100 miles, or 200K distances. The Fabulous 44 includes 42.6 miles and over 4500 feet of climbing.

The “Garrett’s Greatest 25” – A beautiful 25-mile ride along Deep Creek Lake and through the rolling Garrett County farmland, the Garrett’s Greatest 25 includes no major hills.

From there you’ll have the ascents and descents of Big Savage Mountain, Otto, Jennings and Killer Miller. This is an amazing bike course that any serious athlete needs to race during their triathlon career.

Aquabike: 1500 Meter Swim; 22.9 Mile Bike

Triathlon: 750 Meter Swim; 15.5 Mile Bike; 3.1 Mile Run
Aquabike: 750 Meter Swim; 15.5 Mile bike


Bike Course: The SavageMan 20.0 bike is a rolling, relatively flat 15.5 mile course that weaves along the lake on a beautiful ribbon of pavement surrounded by forests and farmland. After a quick turnaround at mile 7.5, athletes will fly back to transition area where they will tackle the 5k run course.

Deep Creek Lake State Park Trails

Deep Creek Lake State Park is located in Western Maryland’s Garrett County. The park encompasses over 1,800 acres and adjoins Deep Creek Lake Natural Resources Management Area and its 3,900-acre man-made lake. Deep Creek Lake State Park lies just west of the Allegheny Front on a large plateau known as the Tablelands or Allegany Highlands. Its location at the southernmost end of Meadow Mountain places it west of the Eastern Continental Divide and within the Mississippi River watershed. The park gets its name from the lake, which was a hydroelectric project, constructed on Deep Creek in the 1920s by the Youghiogheny Hydroelectric Company. With its mile-long shore line, two swimming beaches, 20 miles of hiking/biking trails, 112 site campground, and 6,000 square foot Discovery Center, Deep Creek Lake State Park offers year-round activities for everyone.

McHenry Beverage Shoppe

McHenry Beverage Shoppe was established in 1983 by George & Madeline Collins at the McHenry Plaza Shopping Center. When Hugh Umbel, the current owner, purchased and remodeled it in 2003 the store already boasted a reputation for having a great selection of wines. As “boutique” wines, liquors & beers gained popularity the inventory was broadened, and the already stellar wine selection increased to 3,700 when we created our own temperature-controlled wine cellar. It’s good to note, we always have chilled Champagne & cheeses on hand for impromptu celebrations. Our fine cigar selection contributes to the store’s appeal, which currently occupies 5,000 sq. ft. in the Plaza.
