The Bay View Trail is a 1 mile, easy interpretive trail that is accessible from the picnic area and forms a loop, taking hikers over several boardwalks as they pass through marshes along Belmont Bay and into mature hardwood forest. The trail is an excellent resource for parents and educators with comprehensive interpretive signs along the way. The trail tells the story of the impact of clean watershed on the health of the entire Chesapeake Bay. The trail also features a bird blind and access to the Wilson Spring Trail.
