Paul Leifer Nature Trail, Furnace Town Historic Site Professional Review and Guide

"A short, easy walk through bald cypress swamps and upland forests in The Nature Conservancy’s beautiful, 3,000-acre Nassawango Creek Preserve. Before European settlement, much of the farm country of the Delmarva Peninsula was a vast forest. Along the creeks of southeastern Maryland, the woodlands were lush groves of giant bald cypress, Atlantic white cedar, and loblolly pine. There were lady’s slippers and other orchids, butterflies and salamanders, hawks and warblers, otters and snakes.

While much of the original forest has been cleared, a sliver much like the original survives on Nassawango Creek. Here, on the Paul Leifer Nature Trail in a Nature Conservancy preserve, you can walk among the old groves and see an especially rich community of wild creatures. Bring the kids."
