North Point State Park is located in Baltimore County on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay and is surrounded by beautiful and fascinating natural and historical resources. It consists of 1,310 acres off Old North Point Road in Edgemere. The Defenders Trail was used during the War of 1812 and passes through the park (see the park map). North Point was also the site of the historical Bay Shore Amusement Park, a popular destination for summer visitors from 1906 until it closed in 1947. Visitors can see the original trolley shelter (right) and fountain that have been restored. The trolley shelter is now a popular destination for special events and can be reserved by calling the visitor center. North Point is rich in natural beauty. Come see how Mother Nature reclaimed the land where the amusement park once stood. The park has scenic views overlooking the water, a wading beach, a fishing pier and hiking trails that lead you around the park and through protected wildlands.

Nice trail!!

Check out my 4.5 Mile Recording.
It was another beautiful day on the Trails. If you are just starting to get into Hiking then you should give this place a try. All the Trails are Flat and you have tons of options regarding the distances you wish to hike. The Wetland and Marsh Trails are full of Wildlife but don't wait to late because this area can get Buggy when it gets Muggy. A few trail sections were a bit muddy due to the rain the day before but the area drains and dries out quite fast. On this one given day I saw 2 Bald Eagles, 3 Deer and a Snake on the Trail. I almost stepped on it. It was all green and it's blender was working.

Had a great time. Well marked routes.

North point is a nice place for a quick family walk. The trails are mostly concrete and the brush is maintained.
The loops are short so getting lost is near impossible.

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.

Feb. 11, 2017 and 58 Degrees out. Easy trail loop. All trails in this park are well maintain and marked. Lots of wildlife in this area. 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.
