Terrapin Nature Park is an award-winning 276-acre nature park featuring a 3.25-mile oyster chaff walking trail, which meanders through wildflower meadows, wetlands, tidal ponds, woodlands and sandy beaches. The trail provides a unique vantage point for viewing an incredible variety of waterfowl, wildlife and plant species. A gazebo and wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, located along the beach afford a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and park benches located along the trail provides a brief respite for the weary. The current trail, which wanders over several ridges, across marshlands and through woodlands, features two observation blinds overlooking the tidal ponds. The trail connects to the County’s Cross Island Trail system. We now welcome the addition of multi-use, single track, natural surface trails that provide family focused activities suitable for riders of all ages and skill levels. We’re excited to announce our partnership with QAC Parks and Rec which has approved the building of this new trail addition. Trail design is underway with groundbreaking to occur in the Spring 2021.
