Maryland Group Proposes Water Trail on Antietam Creek

Play associated audio

A group in Maryland is proposing a state water trail on Antietam Creek to help attract tourists and guide paddlers.

A spokesman for the Antietam Creek Watershed Alliance tells the Hagerstown Herald-Mail his group is working with the state Department of Natural Resources on a water trail map for the creek. It would show historic sites, as well as boat launch areas, bridges, portages, and potential hazards along the creek's path.

Antietam Creek begins in Pennsylvania, but runs through Hagerstown and the Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland before it flows into the Potomac River. Maryland has at least 23 existing state-sanctioned water trails with six more in development.
