There are many ways to enjoy your visit at Oxon Cove Park and Oxon Hill Farm. Here are some suggestions for a great park visit:

  • Take a self-guided tour. Explore the farmyard to see the cows, pigs, horses, sheep, goats, and chickens. You'll also notice antique farm equipment, historic structures, and informational outdoor exhibit placards. Stop by the Visitor Barn to pick up a Self-Guided Walking Tour.
  • Hike, Bike, Walk, or Jog. Venture beyond the farmyard and explore Oxon Cove Park's 512 acres by strolling along the lower fields or riding the bike path along Oxon Cove. There are two trails in the park:
    • The Hiker-Biker Trail is 1.6 miles from the parking lot, through forest and fields, and around Oxon Cove. It is open to pedestrians and bicyclists, and has paved surface and moderate hills.
    • The Woodlot Trail is a moderate half mile trail located in a forested area of the park.
  • Have a Picnic. There are first come, first serve picnic tables next to the parking lot. Please be sure to dispose of all litter properly. Make sure that only you eat the food you bring. Our livestock have controlled diets and human food can make them sick.
