There was a park nearby named Raynor Beach County Park. However there we no any connecting trails or wildlife corridors. - Lt. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Park
Ticks were the worst of any experience that I have had in my whole life. Truly unprecedented. At one point I stopped every 5 minutes to brush dozens off my shoes and pants (overgrown trail perfect for questing). Despite being doused in repellant the ticks did not seem to care one bit, gladly crawling over shoes and pants that had been dripping with tick repellant spray. I could not even find a place to sit and fill out my survey questionnaire without constantly being swarmed. All in all, by the end of it, I removed well over 60+ ticks from my person (and I stopped counting quite early on, so there is no telling how many really)." - Robert Cushman Murphy Park
