This route works in both directions and provides a self-powered means to explore this portion of southern Maryland. Colton's Point includes the excellent St. Clements Island Museum and a departure point, by boat, for St. Clement's Island State Park. Port Tobacco is an historic district approximately two miles from La Plata, with lodging, a marina and small boat launch, restaurants and Thomas Stone NHS in the vicinity. Cyclists will want to enjoy the view from the Chapel grounds within Chapel Point State Park and consider a kayak trip on the Port Tobacco River.
