Terrapin Park Morning

This is by far one of the top 10 parks in Maryland. Why? Location and management. Situated next to the Bay Bridge on Kent Island, this park features oyster shell pathways, woodlands, wetlands and a beach with views to die for. Brand new bathrooms for visitors and an attentive and friendly ranger staff are icing on the cake.

From the Terrapin Nature Park website:

This award-winning 276-acre nature park features a 3.25-mile oyster chaff walking trail, which meanders through wildflower meadows, wetlands, tidal ponds, woodlands, and sandy shoreline. The trail provides a unique vantage point for viewing an incredible variety of waterfowl, wildlife, and plant species. A gazebo is located along the sandy shoreline afford a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Park benches located along the trail provides a brief respite for the weary. The trail, which wanders over several bridges, across marshlands and through woodlands, features two observation blinds overlooking the tidal ponds. The trail connects to the County’s Cross Island Trail system. Nearby parking for the Cross Island Trail system is available at Old Love Point Park. Read more…
