Rachel Carson Conservation Park

22201 Zion Road
Olney, MD 20833

This park honors America's outstanding writer, environmental activist, and County resident 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 have been periodic acquisitions through 1990. Rachel Carson Conservation Park is a conservation area dedicated to environmental preservation. The park is undeveloped but provides opportunities for quiet enjoyment of the natural environment. One of the county's premier conservation areas, this Park has more than 6 miles of natural surface trails for hiking and equestrian use.
