WATERWAYS

CREEKS


[photo, Little Hunting Creek, Thurmont, Maryland] For any state, bays and rivers are obviously significant. In Maryland, however, creeks too become especially important for some appear to be the size of rivers.

By definition, a creek is a natural stream of water, normally smaller than, and often tributary to a river. Often, creek waters flow directly into Chesapeake Bay, or merge with other Bay tributaries, such as the Patapsco, the Patuxent, and the Potomac rivers.
