This is an easy day hike best hiked in spring or fall.

Begin the Pocomoke Hiking Trail by walking along Camp Road for 0.3-mile to the trailhead. Take the white-blazes into the mixed woodland, examples of typical Maryland coastal plain. Shortly, you'll enter a grove of lovely hollies beneath towering oaks and pines. At 0.6 mile, the trail makes a sharp turn left into a low-lying area that tends to remain wet. This is the junction with the tail end of the loop trail. Nassawango Road is crossed at 0.9 mile where you'll pass through the gates following the white-blazed route. The trail skirts the edges of the Pocomoke River wetlands twisting and turning through tulip poplars, mountain laurel, and a variety of hardwoods. At 1.7 miles, the trail turns to the left to cross a streambed then twists back to the right as it ascends to level ground. Continue following the white blazes as the trail makes a number of twists and turns amid the poplar forest. An old cemetery is reach at 2.8 miles and Nassawango Road is reach at 3.2 miles. Immediately after crossing the road, head left (west) then make a sharp turn right skirting the edge of the state forest boundary. Follow the white blazes as they wind back to the loop trail junction where you will proceed back to the Camp Road and the parking lot. There are number of resting benches along this twisty path.
