Cross Island Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Maryland’s Cross Island Trail spans Kent Island, east to west, in Queen Anne’s County, providing multiple points of access to everything from libraries and schools to ball fields and the waterfront. It’s an impressively signed, well-maintained, charming trail with some truly exceptional views.
Begin at Terrapin Nature Park, a parcel of protected land for birds and native plant life. Just past the nature area, to the left of the trail, is an old graveyard with fewer than a dozen cracked and weathered headstones tucked among the trees."
