Spacious, uncrowded, beautiful loop trail takes you into the forest and offers glimpses of native wildlife. 

Park in the lot (see map) and follow signage for the loop trail. This is not a highly trafficked trail so there may be sections that need some maintenance, but that won't get in the way of completing the hike.

Neat Place

Take the time to head into Elk Neck State park and see the lighthouse. This park and the forest around it offer some pretty views of the bay.

Great For Families

We've hiked this trail with 3 and 4 year olds. It has manageable slopes for all ages and great views of the bay
