Where to opt outside on the Shore
Sure the weather is getting colder, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still reap the benefits of traversing our local lands, whether it be on a hike, bike, or whatever it is that gets you outside!
We created the following list of trails and open spaces as a handy reminder to get out and take a walk in nature during this holiday season. These places are all located in the Mid and Upper Shore counties where ESLC currently serves.
