on Deep Creek Park

Not a long trail at all but very beautiful and interesting.
Gorgeous wetlands and several places for wonderful views of small pieces of water, and interestingly a well-protected but decrepit 1800s graveyard.

This is the only trail I've ever reviewed without walking. I went to hike this today only to find three signs marking it "no trespassing government property".

I did this a couple years ago. It is a beautiful park.

Short trail, very easy, one of our favorites. This park is rarely crowded and the trail is usually empty. Lots of bugs in the summer, bring mosquito spray, not a lot of wildlife - ducks and crabs and occasionally a turtle - but a peaceful short hike. I hike this one with my kids several times a month. We always continue to the small island past the lookouts, although the last time we went the bridge was broken. Hiking that little island is my kids' favorite part. You can also take the trail over to the Ruritan Club.

Very easy and very short. This is one of my kids' favorite hikes. We usually come at it from the Deep Creek Locks, hike to the Ruritan club and back. If you go at high tide, parts of this trail may be underwater or extremely muddy.

For such a short trail this offers a lot to see! The wetlands, the lake, the beautiful woods and the birds of prey. Do this and Deep Creek Locks on the same visit. It is all part of the same wonderful park.

This is a beautiful spot. It was a beautiful day and the joy of the trails, water, trees, the lookout towers and the atmosphere will pull me back another day.
