|Here is the return of our traditional Mother's Day (or at least the day before Mother's Day) hike at Calvert Cliffs. We encourage all participants to bring their parents along on this hike.|
The main feature of this 4.5-mile loop hike is the huge Miocene cliffs that dominate the waterfront. These cliffs rise above the bay more than 100 feet and are slowly eroding at the rate of almost 3 feet per year. They were created more than 10 million years ago when the Chesapeake Bay was still a shallow sea. As the waters receded, the sea floor became exposed and what was to become fossils gathered at this point. The cliffs are the most extensive assemblage of Miocene fossils (especially shark's teeth) in the eastern United States.
While visitors are no longer allowed access to the cliffs themselves, they are more than welcome to walk and dig in the sand and water on the beach to look for fossils.
Close to noon, we will break for our packed lunches (bring your own) on the beach.
