The latter also contains a variety of land and water trails for hiking, paddling, and birdwatching. Maps for these trails are available from the hosts or at the visitor centers nearby.
The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park are within 10-15 minutes of the rental and are a must-see while guests are here. Both have very informative and welcoming visitor centers and the Tubman park has a wonderful audio tour.
