“An easy, family and pet-friendly run along a forested trail ending at a small sandy beach on the Chesapeake Bay.”— Fred Ryals
For more details visit the park's website.
After about a mile, the brook joins Gray's Creek which broadens into a half-mile long beaver pond. Sections of boardwalk along the pond keep your feet dry and there are several observation areas with benches for those who like to pause and take in nature. In late-November we saw a beaver lodge, geese, and ducks. As you near the beach, the trail passes right next to a beaver dam. Once you get to the beach area you'll find several picnic tables and a wonderful view of the cliffs and the Chesapeake Bay.
