Short beautiful walk.

Love looking at the marsh and wild life. Beautiful in every season. Fun to watch the fishermen bringing in their catch.

You have the feeling of being able to see the best viewing of the beautiful Chesapeake bay on a clear day. Walking around looking at magnificent boats harbored in the marinas and seeing the catch of the day if the captains were lucky. Just a nice way to get exercise to build a hardy appetite.

I live a couple of miles from here and this is a nice area to walk or run. If you are a photographer, you can get some nice pictures especially at sunrise. The path is wide and is easy for children to walk. At times, you can see the local eagles flying around.

Very nice trail but it just sort of ends...it will be nice whenever they actually finish it. We like to walk our dogs there and we usually see several different types of birds and sometimes fish or crabs in the water.

This trail provides an excellent opportunity for everyone to get out and strech your legs while enjoying the natural beauty of Fishing Creek. The trail is primarily boardwalk through the marsh, which allows you to see working crab boats and fishing charters as well as osprey nests and shore birds. The trail splits after approximately 1/2 mile and if you... More

Beautiful scenery, highly maintained walkway with clear signs along the way. Several options and not too long. Highly recommend, especially on a nice evening. Take your camera.

We are big fans of the Rail Trail. We walk this several times a week. This is an easy walk suitable to all ability levels. One can easily walk, run or bike. The trail starts off the parking lot behind the water park. It can be a bit hard to find at first. Just follow the sidewalk near the townhouses... More

I walked the trail with my 3 year old granddaughter. We saw a lot of ducks including 4 ducklings. She was thrilling! There are a many different birds. We also saw a few fish. A very pleasant walk as well as a learning experience.

This is not an incredibly long trail, but it is one of my favorites, and always a refreshing break. It is fun for all seasons at any time of day. I have biked it, "powerwalked" it, strollered along with my baby boy, and kayaked and paddleboarded on the creek below. The beauty of the sights along the trail--the creek, wetlands,... More
