The Bay, Beer & Wine: Calvert Cliffs, MD

Calvert Cliffs, MD: Bring your bathing suit! Beginner’s hike paired with a visit to a beautiful vineyard that boasts live music and a craft beer garden.

Let your inner science nerd shine as you HUNT FOR FOSSILS near the cliffs. You will also have the chance to swim and hang out on the beach.

Welcome summer with a trip to the beach! ! This 4-mile hike winds through a lush coastal forest, alongside freshwater and tidal marshlands, and, at the midway point, includes a stop at the cliffs along the Chesapeake Bay. There you’ll have a chance to try your luck at fossil hunting. Some of these fossils date back to the Miocene era, 10-20 million years ago! There will also be time to swim in the bay and lounge on the beach.

After the hike, we will head to Running Hare Vineyard, a beautiful winery that also boasts a beer garden serving up a variety of Calvert Brewing Company's tasty beer selection.
