Trail ends at Terrapin Park which itself has a bunch of non-paved trails that run along the bays edge.

Europe, are also on exhibit, and you can also visit an enclosed aviary with songbirds and tree ducks from the
Chesapeake region. The perfect place for a "family day" adventure or wildlife photography, the Center includes a

Terrapin Nature Park, Route 8 and Main Street, Stevensville, MD
Located behind the Chesapeake Bay Business Center (where PRS Guitars is), Terrapin Nature Park consists of miles
of nature trails that run along the shore of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as past a very busy pond and marsh areas.
There is signage to explain specific areas and points of interest, as well as overlooks for viewing nature. Many of the
trails are semi-paved with oyster shells, making the walk clear of overgrowth. This park is tucked away in what seems
to be an odd location, but it is well worth a look. To get there by car just take Route 8 (Romancoke Rd) about 3/4 of a
mile North of US-50/301 and make your first left (traffic light) which is into the Chesapeake Bay Business Center.
Make an immediate right inside the center, and follow the road around for about a half-mile. The park's entrance will
be on your right.
