Pemberton Historical Park
While hiking the trails, you will encounter ecosystems and their natural complement of plants and animals that are specific to many different regions of the Eastern Shore. It is rare to find any other place on the Eastern Shore where tidal and fresh water wetlands, fresh water ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows can all be studied within the same site. This unique feature, when coupled with the historical aspects of Pemberton Park, makes it especially attractive for school studies or a casual hike.
Pemberton Historical Park is comprised of 262 acres and 4.5 miles of nature trails, offering visitors the opportunity to explore unique ecosystems that bring together tidal and fresh water wetlands, fresh water ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows.
The trails at Pemberton Park are restricted to walking and hiking only. Due to safety concerns, no biking is permitted.
Pick up a trail guide in the Welcome Area which outlines each loop of the trail, describes its major ecosystems and denotes any significant features that may be found along the way. Visit Website

The trails aren't bad though they didn't seem to be well maintained, as there were some fallen logs across the trails that had not been cleared away when I was there. Some parts of the trails get wet at high tide - I found myself wading in ankle-deep water on the way back out to my car. There are frequently runners on the trails and they can come up on you unexpectedly. Some of the bridges are long and narrow and just wide enough for two - so when you're walking with your dog and other people want to run past you things can get a little dicey. I walked my dog there a few times but never really felt 100% comfortable so I found other parks to go to instead.
