Brickhill Trail


Distance - ?.? mi

One of the most underutilized and beautiful trails on the island, Brickhill Trail is guaranteed to take your breath away! Meandering directly alongside the intercostal waterway, hikers experience spectacular views of oyster beds, marsh, and intricate root systems of washed out trees. Facing the westwards towards the intercostal waterway, this campground provides backpackers with prime sunset viewing! This trail runs exactly one mile, and goes directly through Brickhill campground. Campers can pitch their tents right next to the water, which is a bonus for a breeze that can keep bugs at bay. This campground is a true Island treasure but isn’t as utilized due to it’s distance from Sea Camp. Definitely the most beautiful backcountry campground, make sure and incorporate Brickhill into your backpacking trip to Cumberland. There’s a non-potable water pump at the campground. This trail also has a spur which travels East from the campground, crosses the main road, then collides with Bunkley Trail. This spur passes over an old dike, where you’ll cross over two boardwalks where the trail often gets mucky.
