Overview:

You'd be hard pressed to find a better place to observe the sunset then atop the bluffs at Kiptopeke. Join this ranger lead hike through a maritime forest out to the bluffs at sunset and marvel at shorebirds, dolphin, and other wildlife that live in or migrate through the Chesapeake Bay. Once the sun has slipped out of sight let the moon be your guide as we travel the trails looking and listening for the wildlife found in our park. As we negotiate the trails your senses will adjust and you'll find you have a heightened sense of hearing and smell. Look for fox rustling the leaves in the shadows, listen to the language of the night and look for owls as they flit from shadow to shadow hunting for their meal. Free and open to all ages.
