Yes, there is a little hike to get to the cliffs, and yes, it does go through a swampy area. However, the trail is nicely maintained, board walkway through the swampy part. There was a little bit of wildlife, snakes, frogs, and lizards. Once you get to the cliffs, if you plan on looking for shark teeth, etc, bring something... More

My review doesn't really describe too much that others haven't already complained about, but all I can say is this is definitely not a beach for small children. The 1.8 mile hike would be worth it if the beach and cliffs were an enjoyable outcome. We drove all the way from Frederick, MD (104 miles one way) for what the... More

I've been wanting to visit Calvert Cliffs SP for years. It is a very nice park (trash free, so make sure you bring trash bags to take your trash with you). My party of 5 had a 4.5 hour stay here. We first hiked the red trail to the beach. The trail is very flat, with great scenery. It is... More

The red trail hike is 1.8 miles of reasonably flat, ever terrain. My husband and I walked it in flip flops with no problem. We saw several families with young children, many seniors and eight or so dogs ranging from a Chiweenie to a Rottweiler. No one seemed to have any difficulty with the walk. The beach is blocked off... More

August 2014 Heard Calvert Cliffs was a sight to see when in Southern Maryland. Right next to a nuclear power plant, We thought we would pay the $5 / car entry fee. Three choices of trails to the beach/cliffs. We took the (red) easy trail. It was about a 2 mile hike in. Nice trails, easy to walk. Would not... More

We loved the location and atmosphere. We found a lot of sharks teeth. It is also located close to Chesapeake Beach and Solomons Island

We are very outdoorsy and up for a long hike but were hoping the hike was worth it. The cliffs are blocked off so all you can do is walk a short stretch of unattractive beach far from the cliffs. We looked for fossils and sharks teeth with no luck and headed back on the long return hike. We were... More

We went on an extremely hot day, which probably affected our experience. It was a 1.8 mile walk from the parking lot to the beach. Trail was flat and very well groomed. A few extremely minor slopes, not really worth noticing unless you have difficulty walking or have a stroller. Part of it was boardwalk, passing through wetlands and swamp,... More

After passing on the $15 per person charge at North Beach, we drove to Calvert Cliffs - what a state gem! Spectacular nature walk on a neatly groomed trail. Beautiful sandy beach and stunning cliffs. Be sure to bring your own hydration and snacks as there did not seem to be a town for stops.This is a definite on the... More
