Log Description

This is Little Seneca Lake, a 505-acre lake located in Black Hill Regional Park in Montgomery County, Maryland. Like all lakes in Maryland, it is man-made, created by the WSSC (Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission) as an emergency water supply for the Washington DC metro area. It is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of forest, meadow, and lake habitats that host diverse flora and fauna. This view is from the Visitor Center deck and is a wonderful spot for watching sunsets throughout the year.
