North Point is located in Baltimore County on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay and is rich in natural beauty. This 1,310 acre park in Edgemere was once the site of the Bay Shore Amusement Park, a popular destination for summer visitors from 1906 to 1947. Visitors can see the original trolley station, which is now used as a covered picnicking area, and fountain that has been restored and is still in operation today. The Defenders Trail, which was used by soldiers during the War of 1812, passes through the park. Today, North Point has scenic views overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, a water accessible area, two fishing piers, picnicking and hiking trails that lead you around the park and through protected wildlands. Come see how Mother Nature reclaimed the land where the amusement park once stood and the rich history North Point State Park has to offer.
Todd’s Inheritance Trail
Opportunity for Public Comment
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Maryland Park Service is seeking Critical Area Commission approval to construct a new trail from an existing trailhead parking lot to the Todd’s Inheritance historic site at 9000 North Point Road, Edgemere, Maryland 21219. The project will include an ADA-compliant parking lot at Todd’s Inheritance with a capacity for a school bus and 17 cars. Stormwater management and extensive landscaping will also be provided. The project is located entirely in the Critical Area on property owned by DNR on the eastern side of North Point Road.
The trail will extend 1.5 miles, creating a loop from the existing trailhead parking lot, around the agricultural fields with a spur to the Todd’s Inheritance historic site. It will be six feet wide with a gravel base and a stone dust surface.
Project plans may be viewed here.
The plans may also be viewed by appointment only at the North Point State Park Office, 8400 North Point Road, Edgemere, Maryland (410-592-2897) or at the Maryland Park Service, Department of Natural Resources, 580 Taylor Avenue, E-3, Annapolis, MD 21401 (410-279-0497).
