How to Get There:
Event Directions:

For mapping, use 2100 Daniels Road, Ellicott City, MD

From Baltimore: I-70 West.  Turn onto US29 N which ends in about 1/4 mile.  Take a right on Rogers Ave, go about 1/2 mile to the roundabout, take the 3rd exit which is Old Frederick Road.  go about 1/2 mile and turn left onto Daniels Road and go about 1 mile into the park.  There is a large parking lot about 100 yards past the river access point.

Watch closely for the turn to Daniels Road as both sign and intersection are overgrown and easily missed; it's immediately after Holly Springs Ct which is clearly marked.


DC: take US 29 N to the end and follow Balt directions.
