Tips

As of May 20th, 2020, users have reported that the Greenbury point portion of trail is closed. Please consult the park's website before visiting. Greenbury Point is by the Naval Academy golf course. There are two hikes here. One that is 3.3 miles (Nature Center and Tower Trails) and a 2 mile (Tower Trail). These trails are near an active rifle range. Sometimes this area is closed due to Naval Academy operations nearby, and the trailheads will have signs up indicating this. Please check here to determine the status of the area: https://mobile.twitter.com/NSAAnnapolis The Nature Center Trail can be very overgrown. The Tower Trail is a dirt road and is used a lot by walkers, joggers and bike riders.

Trail is very over grown. Bug spray and long pants are a must. Ticks are very bad on this part of the trail.

If you are at the beach... it’s nice to walk around. But it’s pretty plain

I would recommend the hike there were pretty views of water and lots of flowers. Part of the trail is a gravel path with no side at all, bring hat. About 1 mile of the path is in the forest and it is overgrown in parts and you have to look for the path.

I love running on this trail. It’s closed on occasion though and the reason is there is a shooting range which backs up to a portion of it. The police and Navy MA’s close the trail when the range is live. I live next to the shooting range and know exactly where it is and where it backs up to the trail and in my opinion the trail being closed is an abundance of caution because it’s still quite a ways away separates by the water and woods.

Locals apparently are not worried about the Government Property Firing Range Signs.

The trails mentioned on the map at the visitors center parking lot are short and very overgrown. However the East road/West road loop around the towers has some beautiful views of downtown Annapolis and the Bay Bridge. On the opposite side (down Mcarthy Rd if I remember correctly)there’s an area to drop in kayaks and canoes at Mill Creek and a long area of rocks for fishing and hanging out. Definitely check the loop is open before you go (as mentioned by others, they have a twitter feed).

Great spot ! Was a little concerned about people allowing there dogs to run freely with no leash.. causes anxiety for those pups that follow the rules. Leash Your Dogs people!! Beautiful scenery paths were well marked

Really great spot with some beautiful vistas and fun trails through the woods. Beware, though - even though it’s posted that dogs must be leashed, there were at least 5 off leash on our 3 mile trek - makes for an anxiety filled time for someone like me whose dog is not good with others - LEASH YOUR DOGS PEOPLE!

Excellent path for everyone with views of the Bay Bridge and Annapolis. Nothing difficult about it, just a nice loop around the point. Be wary of dogs not on leash and mud puddles! There are plenty of benches and a few picnic tables along the way. Our jogging stroller had no issues navigating the paths.

Great walk. Trail a bit muddy in spots, understandable due to the heavy rain last night. Great scenery and good workout at a brisk pace.

Really nice hike. It was easy to find, ample parking in the lot adjacent to the trailhead. The trails are not marked well but it’s a loop so no great risk of getting lost. The views of the bay, Chesapeake bay bridge and naval academy are worth the trip!
