Marshyhope Hike and Bike Trail Description

The Marshyhope Creek is a 37-mile tributary of the Nanticoke River running from Delaware to Maryland. One of the towns it passes through is Federalsburg, Maryland, where a 2.5-mile multiuse greenway sits right on the water’s edge. The trail begins as a gravel pathway from the (now closed) VFW boat ramp on Rosser Road heading north through a natural area where one can spot wildlife and waterfowl. The Federalsburg Hometown Veterans Memorial honoring fallen service members can be found at the intersection of S Main Street and State Route 318. A series of wooden pedestrian bridges take trail users above the water as they travel. At the Federalsburg Marina Park, the trail switches to asphalt and heads up into downtown Federalsburg, providing scenic views of the creek. There are benches and trash receptacles scattered along the path.

Parking and Trail Access

To access the trail, you can park behind Union United Methodist Church (301 N Main St.) and at the Federalsburg Marina Park (S Main St.)

To reach to the southern endpoint, take SR 313 to Federalsburg, to SR 308 (Main Street), north. Continue onto Veterans Drive/ Rosser Road. The ramp is off the east side of the street.

Information and directions can also be found for free at the Federalsburg Town Hall (118 N Main St.)
