Parking is available at the main entrance of North Point State Park. This out and back trail is a paved UN-used roadbed that cuts through an old Farm that had historic value during the War of 1812. Look for the small Grave Plot of the Shaw family. The trails continues into the wooded area and it ends at North Point Blvd. This trail crosses 3 side streets within the town of Edgemere. If you take a left at the end of the trail you can walk up to a convenience stop called Micky's and get a sub and something to drink. If you need to get something to drink sooner then you could stop at Robbie's Bar. If you are a Mountain biker there are a few trails beginning to be developed in one section of the woods. Look for side trails into the woods after the first street crossover but before the second one. Please beware of traffic when crossing over any of the side streets. The old farm fields are load with deer in the late evening hours. Very little shade on this trail so beware of the heat, bring plenty of water and maybe wear a hat.

I wasn't able to do the whole road because I had my bulldog with me. We paid $3 to park at North Point State Park, walked to the beginning of this trail, explored the cemetery, and went about a mile further before we turned around. Stretches have no tree cover so it gets really hot. It was a nice alternative to the trails in North Point but I will probably wait for cooler temps before I do it again.

Growing up in this area was great and it seem as though nothing ever changes except for a bunch of new homes. The main town of Edgemere still only has one traffic light. What is being called the Haul Road Trail is a under statement. Growing up in this town, we called it the road to no-where because it had been there forever and was never completed for cars or a train. It wasn't until Sparrow Point Steel Mill decide to create the section of road that runs through the farm and into the area we called Bay Shore Park which is now called North Point State Park. The haul road was only use for a very short time then it went back to being the same. ( The Road To No Where. ) I am glad to see it's still here and it's part of a great trail system of North Point State Park. Re-live history and check this area out.
