Patapsco Valley State Park

Avalon/Glen Artney/Orange Grove Area Paddling and Tubing

When water levels are up in spring and fall and immediately after summer storms (care should be used as current is swift after storms). Bring your own equipment.

You can hike to just below the Bloede Dam (outside of the no trespassing area around the Dam) and put in, taking out at the Gun Rd. Bridge or continuing further down river to the Halethorpe Area. Check out our Resource Based Recreation Partner – Terrapin Adventures for information on opportunities they offer in this area.
