Horse Rentals & Day Ride Trails 632 Wye Island Road

Wye Island NRMA is located in the tidal recesses of the Chesapeake Bay between the Wye River and the Wye East River. Of Wye Island's 2,800 acres, 2,450 are managed by the Department of Natural Resources Maryland Park Service for agricultural and resource management. A major emphasis at Wye Island is to provide suitable habitat for wintering waterfowl populations and other native wildlife. A primary resource management objective at Wye Island is the stabilization of the 30 miles of ever-eroding shoreline. These efforts are accomplished through a partnership between DNR and numerous environmental advocacy groups, such as the Chesapeake Bay Trust and the USDA-RC&D Council. Service learning opportunities abound at Wye Island.
Wildlife viewing and hiking are the most popular activities on Wye Island's six miles of trails. The School House Woods Nature Trail takes you through a mature hardwood forest while the Ferry Landing Trail leads beneath a canopy of Osage Orange Trees. Wye Island also houses a Holly Tree that is more than 275 years old. Follow the Holly Tree Trail to visit this long-time resident.

The topography of the island is relatively flat. From the novice to the advanced hiker, access to trail system is very easy. Visitors can see a variety of birds and wildlife including ducks, geese, wading birds, Bald Eagles, the endangered Delmarva Fox Squirrel, whitetail deer and many other species. Horseback riding and bicycling are also popular but visitors are encouraged to approach these activities with respect for the environment. Horses and bicycles may be off limits in some areas during specific times of the year. Please call ahead to confirm access.

For information about the Trailblazer Program, which allows you to support trails in the Maryland State Park of your choice, please click Maryland Trailblazer Program.

The deer population is specially managed by permit only hunts held each Fall and Winter. From mid September to late January, these hunts help maintain the ecological balance between the whitetail deer herd and their habitat. There is limited fox chasing and raccoon hunting, also by permit only. For more information, contact the facility.
