Greenbury Point

Greenbury Point, located at the mouth of Severn River in Anne Arundel County, is a Navy property managed by Naval SupportBlack Swallowtail Caterpillar, Greenbury Point, Annapolis, Maryland Photo by Matthew Beziat
Activity (NSA) Annapolis as a mission-supportive natural resources conservation area. It also serves as a popular hiking destination
for nature lovers, runners, walkers, and dog walkers. While the Navy keeps the conservation area open to the public, it is also critical
to the NSA Annapolis mission and can close anytime without prior notification to support installation operations.

Greenbury Point is encumbered by surface danger zones from the USNA weapons range on Carr Creek. In 1999, the North Severn
entry control points were removed and the area became accessible by the general public. The existing walking/nature trails and access
roads are open to the community when the range is not operational. These trails have become increasingly and overwhelmingly
popular during the COVID pandemic.
