River Access, Hazard and Incident Reports

Patapsco closed from Old Frederick Rd to Route 40
Author Last Post

Heads up, fans of paddling the Patapsco: the river is closed from Old Frederick Rd to Route 40 because of a sewer-related construction project that may last for years! There are very prominent closure signs at the Old Frederick Rd put-in. (We encountered these, to our surprise, on Weds. June 24, 2020.) An alternative put-in for the heartiest fans is the former Union Dam site on river right just below Route 40, accessed by descending a steep, ¼-mile trail from the Hollofield Area of Patapsco State Park (off Route 40). If anyone knows of an easier way to access the river near there, please chime in. For the project notice, see: https://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/Agencies/publicworks/engineering/publicnotices/patapscoreliefsewer.html
