Indian Creek Trail (MD) Description

Maryland's Indian Creek Trail is one of the shorter components of the Anacostia Tributary Trail System, but it serves as a vital link between the town of Berwyn Heights, Maryland, and scenic Lake Artemesia to its south. The trail runs entirely through dense woodlands, providing an abundance of shade and making this trail slightly cooler than others in the humid summer months.

Begin your trek at Lake Artemesia, which contains trailheads for the Lake Artemesia Trail, Northeast Branch Trail, and Paint Branch Trail. About 1 mile north of the lake, the trail enters Indian Creek Park. The park features a playground, T-Ball field and a popular outdoor skating rink. The trail ends in the north at busy Greenbelt Road/State Route 193.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Indian Creek Trail can be found in Indian Creek Park at the intersection of Berwyn Road and Ruatan Street.
