The 1 mile hike is a rewarding migratory bird-watching trek.

From Bogle's Wharf Road, Duck Inn Trail begins in a woodland area dominated by loblolly pine and bordered by marshes. In this section, evidence of previous prescribed fires is visible. The trail then moves into a field dominated by tall grasses and open marsh. Finally, the trail moves through an area of scattered loblolly pine and deciduous trees before terminating at the bank of the Chester River. The shore at this point is composed of an oyster midden and looks east over the river. Waterfowl may be visible here during the late fall, winter, and into the early spring.

Directions: From Chestertown, MD, Take State Route 20 South to Rock Hall (12 miles). At Rock Hall turn left onto State Route 445 South. Travel 8 miles to reach the refuge. Visitors must drive across a wooden bridge to gain access. Once you cross Eastern Neck Narrows, travel to the first road on the left, Bogle's Wharf Road. The first parking lot provides trailhead parking.
