Shad, Flowers, and Birds
Mar 01, 2015 by: baltimore_smoove from Baltimore, Maryland
Shad run is both inspiring and tragically diminished due to long term neglect of the Chesapeake Bay. Visit in April-May to see the best Trillium hillside in the area, Just drive along the river and look, well, up the hill! Migratory songbirds visit in the same time frame. Bring binoculars for these and the bald eagles. Go the dam for many eagles, but avoid the long-lens dummies shooting the same tired eagle pics.

We enjoyed a short hike on a very cold day. Lovely, well maintained trails and nice views. Would like to go back when it's warmer.

Nature at it's finest. Even the drive TO the park is beautiful. Off the beaten path but worth going out of your way for.

We went here primarily to see the grist mill - it was worth it. There are several other buildings in that area that are beautifully preserved. We took a few minutes to walk up by the railroad tracks and photograph the Susquehanna River - the park is a great place to walk and there are many trails - it was too cold for us to take advantage of that on this trip - but we made notes for the next time we are in the area.
Great Hiking Options

Susquehanna State Park is kind of a hidden secret in Harford County Maryland. There is a great network of color coded hiking trails with opportunities for all levels of hikers. Most trails take you through forested area with some stretches in open fields. Some trails run parallel to the Susquehanna River Several trails can be rocky and steep, so good hiking shoes are recommended. If you prefer level hiking a trails close to the river follows for the most part an old railroad bed and a canal towpath. Good opportunities to see water birds, ospreys and eagles along this trail.
