ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Beginning on or about Monday, June 7th, the County’s Department of Recreation & Parks will close the parking lot at Haviland Mill Park in Clarksville to allow for work to begin on the loop trail. The closure of the parking lot is necessary to allow for contractor vehicles to safely access the trail during construction. 
Improvements to the loop trail will begin at the edge of the parking lot and will include sections of elevated board walk, natural surface trail and crib wall. Once complete, the trail will provide visitors a universal accessible route to view the Patuxent River from an observational platform. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed in late fall, early winter 2021.
