Butterfly Trail


Leonardtown Butterfly Trail (opened in July of 2021). This brand new
trail (as well as the kid's Caterpillar Corner) highlights exciting historic landmarks,
beautiful outdoor spaces, hidden works of art and fun activities throughout this
vibrant Southern Maryland Town. All this and more is waiting for you to rediscover
in Leonardtown!

As an Arts & Entertainment District (the only one in Southern Maryland), it’s
fitting that the trail will be marked by beautiful butterfly banners and flags
created by one of Leonardtown’s talented local artists, Eric Clark Jackson of Bay Fibers Studio. Eric created the unique works of art through a process called batik. Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth. Eric views his work as a contemporary take on traditional wildlife illustration, with much of his subject matter pulled from the land and water of the Chesapeake region. 


Download the Butterfly Map/Directory or pick up a copy at the Leonardtown Welcome Center at the Old Jail Museum and get started today! For more information about Leonardtown and this exciting new trail contact 301-475-9791.
