Interpretive panels along the Chesapeake Beach Rail Trail
offer an opportunity to learn more about the marsh plants, animals and other features of the adjacent water and marshland.
The Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail runs alongside Fishing Creek in the small town of Chesapeake Beach, in Northern Calvert County, partially on the right of way of the long abandoned Chesapeake Beach Railway. The creek is a significant watershed that empties directly into the Chesapeake Bay. The entire trail project lies within the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area, and offers scenic views of the creek itself, hundreds of acres of surrounding marsh and forest, and includes two bridges across the creek and several timber walkways either over the creek or marshland. Wildlife is abundant, and visitors to the trail are quite often treated to sightings of bald eagles.
