Birding & Boating the Harriet Tubman Byway
Delmarva Birding Weekends is teaming up with River Run Cruises and Harriet Tubman Tours to offer tours on the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway! During the first two hours of the self-driven tour, you’ll learn about the many daring escapes led by Harriet Tubman. In Caroline County, Harriet Tubman found shelter and assistance as she traveled along the Underground Railroad to Delaware. The driving route courses through the farms, forests and Underground Railroad sites until you arrive in Denton, where you’ll explore the Choptank on a two-hour cruise aboard a pontoon boat. Downriver, landings and points along the Choptank served as sites for perilous escapes by boat. The shallow waters of the Upper Choptank provided crossings for freedom seekers heading north.
