Pocomoke State Forest Hiking Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"An easy loop hike through the woodlands and along the swamps of the Pocomoke State Forest on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The Pocomoke River runs through southeastern Maryland from southern Delaware down to the northern border of Virginia.
Before emptying into the Chesapeake Bay at Pocomoke Sound, the river drains the fertile farmlands west of Ocean City and the deep, shady woods of southern Worcester County. In Pocomoke State Forest, you can experience the river’s wilder side as you walk among the pine, poplar, magnolia, and mountain laurel that flourish on its banks. Special considerations: Where the trail is grassy, ticks are plentiful."
