About this event

Join other newbies/beginners as we bike the Cross Island Trail and celebrate our achievements with a beach day at Terrapin Nature Park!

Terrapin Nature Park

191 Log Canoes Cir

Stevensville, MD 21666

Meet & Greet 1-1:15p

- Before the ride, we will meet at the grilling area of Terrapin Nature Park (see picture) for a meet & greet.

Bike Ride 1:15-3:15p

- We'll ride the Cross Island Trail from Terrapin Nature Park to Kent Narrows (about 5.5 miles) then turn around to return back to Terrapin Nature Park (about 5.5 miles) for a total of approx 10.5 - 11 miles. You do not have to complete the entire trail if you are not comfortable going that far. Feel free to turn around at any point and meet us at the beach after the ride.

Beach 3:15-5p

- After completing the trail, we will head to the beach through a short gravel trail. You can bike the short gravel trail to the beach or lock your bike to your vehicle and walk the gravel trail to the beach (security officers are stationed in the parking lot). This beach is not used for swimming. You can get in the water to play/splash around but do not go far out and do not swim. Feel free to bring any beach games/activites/books/lunch.

About the Trail:

- Cross Island Trail is a beautiful/serene out & back trail near Kent Island. The trail is very smooth/paved. It features a mixture of shaded areas and full sun. There are benches and a playground along the way as well. This trail crosses a few isolated streets but the area is very quiet with little to no traffic. The trail is mostly flat but there are some areas to practice tiny hills.
