Very enjoyable day now that the heat wave is gone. After 4 days in the high 90's I was ready to get back on the trail. First timer at this place and I thought it was pretty nice. I was a bit disappointed that you were not able to purchase food on this Location. 2 Soda machines but no chips or cookies. To me the museum office building is a total waste of valuable space. Could have been a Country Store selling snacks, ice, picnic gear and even worms for fishermen. I will have to go back on a weekend just to scope it out more. Be sure to get a park map at the main gate. The girl didn't give me one and it shows the other nature trails. I hiked the complete outside Perimeter. It was all paved in blacktop. Shaded most of the time. I saw at-least 8 deer with baby fawns up in the Locust Cove section along the water.

I'm here a lot with my kids. This is a nice, easy, paved trail through some very nice woods and with a nice view of the Chesapeake Bay in a few places. Check out the salt marsh pond overlook, and aviary for rescued birds. There's a playground for your kids and a dog beach for your dog. The trail is great for jogging or walking.

Didn't have cash on hand to pay the entrance fee ($6 no debit or credit cards accepted) so I had to find a nearby ATM. Fine walk though.

Date: 1/4/2017 Nice Hike

Enjoyable with company. Shaded and very calming.

Nice paved loop trail around the perimeter of the park, passing though some light forested areas, some open areas and by the water. Trail features a couple bridges and wildlife; we saw a doe standing along the trail. There is also a fishing pier, playground and dog beach available. Great location for a family outing, picnic and having fun with Fido. The park also has a bike club where after you log 360 miles of riding, you can earn a patch from the Park information center. There is a small fee for entry (free for veterans with ID) and ample parking.

Nice walking trail - very easy and has wooded areas in addition to water views. Best for dog owners because at the end of the trail there is a small dog beach that is usually not very crowded. Important to know that the dog beach is slightly fenced off but not contained like a dog park.

Great morning walk/hike on the perimeter trail, lots of wildlife to see.
