Attention Day Trippers: The Brighton Azalea Garden is the place to take Mom on Mothers Day. And, if Mom likes a picnic you can do so on the picnic grounds below Brighton Dam but just don't make Mom clean up!
History of the area: Triadelphia (Brighton Dam) and Rocky Gorge (T. Howard Duckett Dam) Reservoirs are surrounded by 6,000 acres of wooded property that comprise the WSSC portion of the Patuxent Watershed.
