One of Cumberland’s most underutilized trails, Brickhill Trail is guaranteed to take your breath away! Meandering directly alongside the Intracoastal Waterway, hikers experience spectacular views of oyster beds, marsh, and intricate root systems of tide battered trees. Facing westward toward the Intracoastal Waterway, Brickhill Bluff Campground provides backpackers with prime sunset viewing! This trail runs exactly one mile, and goes directly through the campground. Campers can pitch their tents right next to the water, with a bonus breeze that can keep bugs at bay. This campground is a true island treasure but isn’t as utilized due to its distance from Sea Camp. Definitely the most beautiful backcountry campground, be sure to incorporate Brickhill into your backpacking trip. 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 intersects with Bunkley Trail. This spur passes over an old dike, where you’ll cross over two boardwalks. The trail often gets mucky.
