North Point State Park Trail is a 4 mile loop trail located near Sparrows Point, Maryland and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.
This is one of my favorite trails for a casual day. it is all flat and has a beautiful scenery. There are a few extended short paths to discover as well as the main loop.
Jan. 25, 2017 and it was in the mid 50's. Easy trail loop for even seniors. All trails are well maintain and marked. Lots of wildlife in this natural area. The wetland trail is a pine forest with a beaver pond in the middle. There is a observation platform there. The marshes are full of waterfowl. If you also take the old oak trail you will see tons of holly trees. Nature is in balance here for sure. The trails are flat and dry even after 2 days of rain.
This was an enjoyable hike that is not too far of a trip from Baltimore. Despite the fact that it is late fall, there is a lot to see, and the shoreline and forest views are no less beautiful. We meandered around the main trail and took several of the smaller off-shoots. The abandoned building on the Power House loop has some cool graffiti inside and is worth a look. I also had fun looking for sea glass on the shoreline. The trails themselves were well-maintained and clearly marked. Overall, we had a great time!
Love this park....frequent it with my daughter. We have seen a number of wildlife...Turtles, frogs, foxes, woodpeckers, herrings, snakes...and its pup friendly most of the yr. The beach is a nice place to relax on and just look for rocks. Also during the winter months its frozen over...great pictures, lots of photo ops....
Beautiful trail, has a beach and places for people to fish. Five stars!

Nice year round walk. Takes you through several different habitats including marsh, forest and field.
I've been back a couple times since my last review from here and i'm so glad! Much better experience. The Power House trail and the shore views made it the best hike!
Came for a Mother's Day jaunt and was pleasantly surprised! The park has two fishing docks and a small beach! Many picnic tables and grills are sprinkled around the grounds nearest the water. The hiker-biker trail was relatively flat and somewhat marshy. There are many different vista points set up for bird/creature watching along the trail. We were very glad we visited in early May; it seems like it will get quite buggy when the Maryland summer humidity kicks in. If your looking for a low-key afternoon of wandering and exploring, this may be a good spot for you to check out! If you are geared up for a real hike with inclines and rocks scrambles this may not be the place for you!
It was really mellow, not too busy, and clearly marked. We didn't get to enjoy the shoreline but we will be back next time to really explore.
