This short handicapped accessible trail leads to a bird blind.

Begin the Tubby Cove Boardwalk hike from the Tubby Cove kiosk and parking area. Take the wooden boardwalk that extends over a healthy and diverse marsh to a wooded "island." Once on the island, the boardwalk passes through a stand of loblolly pines to two viewing platforms. The main path leads to a handicapped-accessible enclosed wooden viewing blind. A roughly-defined trail from the main path extends to an elevated viewing platform providing a look out over the Chesapeake Bay and into Calfpasture Cove and Tubby Cove.

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 parking lot. Here you'll find trailhead parking for Tubby Cove Boardwalk and Boxes Point Trail. Restrooms, too.
