About the hawlings river
The Hawlings River is a tributary of the Patuxent River located in Montgomery County, Maryland. The river is approximately 6.5 miles long and has a watershed area of 22 square miles. It was named after Richard Hawlings, an early landowner in the area. The river has historically been used for transportation, agriculture, and industry. There are two reservoirs on the river, the Triadelphia Reservoir and the Brighton Dam Reservoir, that serve as a source of drinking water for the surrounding communities. The Brighton Dam is a concrete gravity dam and is the tallest dam in Maryland, standing at 102 feet tall. There are also several parks and hiking trails along the river that provide recreational opportunities such as fishing, hiking, and kayaking. The Hawlings River is an important resource for the local community and plays a vital role in the region's ecology and economy.
