This largely undeveloped area of Patapsco is enjoyed by paddlers, anglers and hikers. Once a bustling mill town, hikers will find little treasures of the past as they walk along trails on either side of the river. This is the perfect section of the park for a quiet afternoon walk or a morning paddle as the mist floats just above the river’s glassy surface. The Daniels Dam features a display on fish spawning activity in the river and how the fish ladder works. Pets are permitted throughout the Daniels Area, but must be on a leash at all times. Please clean up after your pet.
