Bike & Wine Tour
Experience a 12-mile easy ride along the Little Patuxent River riding our comfortable mountain bikes over paved paths and hard-packed dirt. Along the way we often see wildlife and learn about the history of the area. We arrive at beautiful Lake Elkhorn and travel around this lake for 2 miles enjoying the sites and sounds of the lake. Then we enjoy some wine, cheese, and French bread along the lake before heading back to our base camp at Savage Mill.
