Kayaking the Daniels Area above the damDaniels Area Paddling

Paddlers can enjoy this section of the Patapsco River year-round.

Water is backed up behind the Daniels Dam to provide about 2 miles of flat water even during low water conditions.

When the river is running high, paddlers can travel from Woodstock Road (Rt. 125) to the Daniels area, approximately 4.7 river miles.

A soft launch is available just above the Daniels Dam.
