Description:

Calvert Cliffs, clay bluffs up to 120 feet high lining 30 miles along the Western Shore of Maryland's Chesapeake Bay, have been world-famous for centuries, thanks to their rich deposits of fossils from the Miocene period 15 million years ago. Fossils from some 600 paleo-species have been identified here, including numerous sharks' teeth and shells of extinct oysters, clams and other mollusks. A portion of this unique landform has been set aside for public use as Calvert Cliffs State Park, where we will hike an easy 5-mile loop with 250 feet of elevation gain through rolling woodlands, wetlands, and the beach beneath the fossil-bearing cliffs. An optional visit to nearby Solomons, MD for snacks or libations follows. Bring beverages, lunch, and about $12 for transportation and trip fees. Meet at the fashionably late hour of 10 a.m. at the New Carrollton Metro Station, at the foot of the clocktower facing Route 50.
