    Located at the headwaters of Maryland’s largest freshwater swamp, the Zekiah, Cedarville State Forest invites exploration and adventure of its diverse natural, recreation and historic features. Rare carnivorous plants that catch and eat insects are uniquely found here. Hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians can enjoy 19 miles of trails, developed in the 1930s by a Civilian Conservation Corps comprised mostly of African Americans. Over 50 species of trees thrive in an actively managed 3,510-acre forest, demonstrating an array of beneficial and experimental forestry practices.
