We have been back a few times. Took the dog and kids. Make sure you check for ticks as with any outdoor activity on the Easter shore. Clean, trails are well marked, nice no cost way to spend a few hours.

On of the most special places on the Eastern Shore. Consider the venue for a quiet walk or a special event. We always learn something when visiting PC!

Although the trails are not well-marked, we found our way through the woods, along the road, and down to the Pickering Creek. We recommend bringing bug repellent and binoculars. We didn't get to meet any staff since it was the end of their workday, so...More

Thanks for coming out to take a look! It is high mosquito season right now, with the heavy rains of May/June providing lots of habitat for the little buggers, but they should even out soon and not be so prevalent, so I do hope you...More
