Really enjoyed the cliff views. Great little town close to home to enjoy with the family. There was a big group of us.

Only an hour 's drive from Annapolis on a Sunday morning, it seemed we were in another part of the country on holiday. The fall colors in the tall trees, the hard-packed, 1.8 mile sandy trail to the western shore of the Chesapeake, made it magical. Along the way is a clear stream flowing into a marshland and out to... More

We were greeted by the sweetest woman at the gate. The hike/walk to the beach was lovely and relaxing. Perfect for our puppy. The beach was beautiful and quiet. We got there before the crowds... didn't find any shark teeth or fossils but we had a beautiful morning.

The walk itself is a smooth, relaxing 4 mile round trip path that takes to a small beach with a view of the cliffs. Be sure to grab some seafood at Jerry's in your way back.

Went to Calvert Cliffs with my family to have a day for fun exploring and learning that is what we did. We found a lot of sea glass and a few sharks teeth. Good time for all ages.There is no charge after 5pm for the beach and they have a portapotty.

Ive been coming here for years and everytime there is something different. Its a 1.8 mile hike to the beach area but not a hard path. The new wooden walkways are a.big plus. Beach can be crowded. Take a sieve and start looking for shark teeth. Most are small. Be patient. The only bad part is the lack of clean... More

The 1.8 mile hike was on a nice level path. Unfortunately the beach at the end of the trail was packed. Very small beach- certainly not a place to sun bathe. My guess is that very few fossils are ever found.

It's a long walk to the beach (1.8 miles) each way. Walk is nice though; on clear paths. Restrooms were very dirty. The "beach" area is small & getting smaller as the cliffs erode more with storms. Lots of foolish people disobeying posted signs & ranger warnings not to sit or walk under cliffs. We did find a few shark's... More

I love coming to this park to see the new ways nature has changed the area. I was there the day little creek was made by the beach (unintentionally made, really) about 13 (+/-) years ago. The hike is pretty easy for all ages and it's neat to see all the different plant life. The beach is big enough for... More
