Seaside Water Trail

Explore the 100 mile long Virginia Seaside Water Trail, a series of day-use paddling routes running between the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge at Cape Charles and Chincoteague Island.

Additional trail segments go through Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and connect to Assateague National Seashore and the Assateague Canoe Trail. The Trail branches off at Chincoteague Island and ends at the Village of Greenbackville near the Virginia/Maryland state line.

New floating docks have been installed in Chincoteage at Downtown Park, at Quinby Harbor and Wachapreague Harbor. The web site is a comprehensive on-line guide to the 37 routes of the trail. It introduces canoe and kayak enthusiasts of all skill levels to extraordinary paddling opportunities.
