Beauty in Your Backyard

Behind Watkins Preserve, you can find the beautiful Magruder Branch Stream Valley Trails, which offer both hard surface trails and natural surface trails. The hard surfaces consist of both asphalt and boardwalk, making a great trail for hikers, bikers, and equestrians alike. There are also zoning permits for one to two hours, if you have two acres of land—which all plots of land should include. There are 4.2 miles of hard surface trails and 3.3 miles of natural surface trails available, creating the perfect environment for horseback riding or just hiking with friends and family. You can see the map of the trail system here (click to expand):

As it follows the Magruder Branch Stream Valley, the 4.2-mile trail offers views of the surrounding upland forests and provides wonderful birding opportunities. The boardwalk sections of the trail span the stream and associated wetland areas. The natural surface trail heads south just outside Magruder Recreation Park, continuing down the Magruder Branch Stream Valley. About a mile south of Watkins Road, the Lower Magruder meets the Seneca Creek Greenway trail after crossing Seneca Creek by a stepping stone bridge.
