Explore the Northeast Corner - MD

You don't have to drive far to enjoy a diverse, relaxing, fun slice of Maryland. This 2-park adventure only involves about an hour of driving, but includes a lot of adventure as you climb a tall lighthouse and gaze across a covered bridge, hike, bike, camp and swim!   DAY ONE: Start your journey at Elk Neck, where 2,188 acres of sandy beaches, marshlands, and heavily wooded bluffs overlook the North East River, the Elk River and the Chesapeake Bay. Swim in the Bay, launch a canoe, or hike out to Turkey Point Lighthouse, the landmark of this park. There you can stand on a 100-foot bluff and look out over the Bay and see for miles. On Saturdays and Sundays (April - November between 10am and 4pm) you can climb up to the top of the 35-foot-tall lighthouse and learn more about its history.   DAY TWO: About 40 minutes north of Elk Neck State Park via MD-272 and MD-213, is Fair Hill NRMA where your adventure continues. Bordered by Pennsylvania and Delaware, Fair Hill is known for its pristine fields, woodlands and natural beauty. Don't miss the Covered Bridge, a great historic landmark and picnic spot. It was constructed in 1860 for the Cecil County Commissioners, at a cost of $1,165. This area also offers fishing, hiking, biking, and equestrian use trails.
