Ferry Point Trail is one of three popular trails within the Natural Resource Management Area. Osage orange trees abound.

Ferry Point Trail is open to hikers and mountain bikers. Leashed pets are permitted along the 1.5-mile of easy path that winds through a woodland of osage orange trees and spills down to the Wye River at Drum Point. At the river, a small beach area provides the perfect picnic lunch spot and watching the watercraft along the very scenic Chesapeake Bay.

Directions: From Annapolis, MD, Take the Bay Bridge, also known as the William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial Bridge, east across the Chesapeake Bay. This is U.S. Highway 50. Proceed straight for 3 miles past the split with US 301. From US 50, turn right onto Carmichael Road. This road takes you directly into the Natural Resource Management Area. You will travel 5 - 6 miles, crossing Wye Narrows and winding your way right. Ferry Point Road is several miles south on the right. Take this road to trailhead parking.
