“Trail allows easy access into Fishing Creek wetland”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The trail consists partly of a new boardwalk next to Fishing Creek on the left (as you head out) and marshland on the right. The trail splits where it crosses the creek. If you walk to the left, you'll cross the creek and the trail is actually a modern path that follows the old railroad tracks. It stops at a scenic, peaceful bend further up Fishing Creek. If you turn right, the path/boardwalk takes you past some homes then over more marshland and into some woods, and it deadends at another housing development. You can get about 2 1/2 miles in if you walk the whole trail and back. There are benches and good signs about local wildlife along the way. Plenty of free parking in second lot behind the Chesapeake Beach Aquatic center. Over the past year I've seen white egrets, ducks, geese, osprey, herons, bald eagles, water snakes, a large water turtle and a beaver!
