Mile 42.0 - Near mile mark 42, there a large culvert where the Little
Monocacy empties into the Potomac. A great place to hunt pollywogs come early
May. Between the towpath and the river is the remains of Doctor Boyd's homestead,
built in the late 1700's, before the canal was started. It looks very similar
to some of the lockhouse remains.
These pollywogs are plentiful and very easy to find in season. Usually late April and early May. Climb down to the
river level and look at all the shallow areas in the creek. On a good year, if there's lots of rain, you can find them in the canal too.
