UPDATE (7/3/23): Unfortunately, Dans Mountain Pool will remain closed for the 2023 season while we continue to work on necessary improvements to the pool and bathhouse. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to reopening in 2024. The pool will be waiving expiration dates on all 2023 Maryland Park Service Park Passports and Dans Mountain Pool Passes for the 2024 season.
Update (May 2022): A new hiking and mountain biking trail is now complete at Dans Mountain State Park and open for public use. Parking is available at the swimming pool area, and the trail can be accessed near the Daniel Cresap monument. The trail is approximately five miles in length and is rated moderate in difficulty with some challenging sections due to the variability of terrain and changes in elevation. Please exercise good judgement for the first few weeks as new trails can be fragile and more-easily damaged by use after wet weather.
