Experience Harriet Tubman by Land

 The Experience Harriet Tubman & the Underground Railroad by Land is a twelve mile, three hour biking tour offering visitors the opportunity to experience and learn about the life of Harriet Tubman and historic details of the Underground Railroad on the very landscapes where these events happened and where the people lived. Come to

Dorchester County , Maryland , birthplace and childhood home of Harriet Tubman, and experience the land by riding on Trek 7 speed bicycles. The tour focuses on the greater Bucktown and Little Blackwater Bridge area near the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, where Tubman spent portions of her childhood and young adulthood.  Learn of the plight of the people of the county in the 1800's and the flights to freedom of those able and brave enough to flee. Hear the stories told by a family who has lived in the county since the mid 1600's.  The agricultural and water landscapes feature historic sites directly related to Harriet Tubman and her family, and the lives of several freedom seekers fleeing this part of the County during the early to mid nineteenth century.
