IMPORTANT Announcements

OFF-ROAD VEHICLES: Effective immediately, off-road vehicles can be ridden at Wolf Den Run State Park, however (with reservations):

  • Drivers/riders must be riding with immediate family members or people with which they reside.
  • No more than 10 people may be included in a given party.
  • Gatherings and organized events remain prohibited.

  • Wolf Den Run State Park is excited to announce the initial success of the Huckleberry Rocks Area for its multi-use trails including Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) use. Park staff is currently in the planning and preparation phase for the Potomac River Area which will add many more miles of trails.
  • When visiting, please stay on designated trails. Sticking to the designated trails is important as park staff work hard to add additional sustainable trails. Recently park staff have had to reclaim and close “rogue” visitor-created trails. Rogue trails are often non-sustainable and can cause long term harm to the area. Maintenance and closure of rogue trails draws resources away from the development of new trails. Please talk with the park staff if you have ideas, issues, or concerns regarding trails.

ALERT: Park Staff have added a Wolf Den Run State Park, “Duty Ranger” cell phone for specific questions or concerns: (301) 616-3619

ALERT: Reservations are required for ORV use. Please call 301 334-9180 to make reservations.

The property comprises three distinct parcels, including approximately three miles of frontage on the Potomac River’s North Branch, three brook trout streams, 1,700 acres of mixed forest, and unique rocky bluffs rising 900 feet above the Potomac River. All three parcels include areas of rugged, mountainous terrain with numerous ephemeral streams, meadows, small tributaries, and wetlands.

Historically, all of the parcels were mined for coal, and evidence of the former mining activity is evident in the bench-cut terrain that characterizes various parts of each tract, providing a variety of challenging trails for hiking or riding. Recreational opportunities now include Off-Road-Vehicle (ORV) riding, hiking and biking trails in the Huckleberry Rocks Area. Note: Currently the trails in the Huckleberry Rocks Area are the only trails open in Wolf Den Run State Park. Additional trails, camping, fishing, and hunting opportunities will be forthcoming.
