Rachel Carson Conservation Park is a 650-acre park dedicated to environmental preservation, but it does provide opportunities for quiet enjoyment of the natural environment. This park contains more than six miles of natural surface trails for hiking and equestrian use and is one of the county’s premier conservation areas.

This park honors writer, environmental activist, and county resident Rachel Carson by conserving 650 acres in the Brookeville area of Montgomery County. Most of the park was acquired just after Ms. Carson’s death in 1964, although there were periodic acquisitions through 1990.
