The Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail is located partially on the right of way of the long-abandoned Chesapeake Beach Railway. The creek is a significant watershed that empties directly into the Chesapeake Bay. The trail offers scenic views of Fishing Creek and hundreds of acres of surrounding marsh and forest and includes two bridges across the creek and several timber walkways over the creek or marshland. Wildlife is abundant and visitors to the trail are quite often treated to bald eagle sightings.
