||Well-marked trails allow you to observe local birds and wildlife while hiking or biking. North Point’s habitats support muskrats, beavers, foxes, otters, ospreys, great blue herons, and bald eagles. A variety of waterfowl, songbirds, and raptors make their homes at North Point.
More than half of the park is designated as a state wildland area where bicycles and pets are prohibited. You can view the 350-acre Black Marsh from a convenient observation deck.
North Point also supports fishing, flatwater canoeing, boating, and waterfowl hunting with the proper permits.
The park’s picnic tables offer a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay, and North Point rents the restored trolley station for large group picnics.
Check out the Old Bayshore Park ruins—evidence of a premier turn-of-the-century amusement park that includes the 1,000-foot bayshore pier, the trolley station, a restaurant, and a fountain.
Park officers also conduct a variety of educational programs throughout the year—including bird walks, canoe trips in Shallow Creek, ecology workshops, and the annual Bay Shore Days.
