The Arden settlement was built up along a stretch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks. The community is known today to whitewater enthusiasts as being situated between two landmark rock formations: Hell's Gate and Devil's Den. Many such recreationalists shoot the shallow rapids of the river through this pristine section of the Valley with its numerous large boulders and small falls. The area is home to a notable number of native wildflowers and is locally notorious for its occasional drownings.
