In one mile (39°10'16.89"N 75°25'52.35"W), there are several large fuel tanks (the tank farm) to the north. Continuing out the main road past the tanks, there is a productive stretch of marsh to the left (N). About 1.25 miles past the tank farm, you will arrive at the bay shore. The next 1.5 miles offer good birding along the shore, and the wooden fishing pier (39°10'53.12"N 75°24'13.01"W) allows birders to overlook a vast expanse of marsh.
