Virginia’s trails offer some of the best views of the state’s natural landscape. Winding through forests, mountains and valleys, these hikes are unparalleled in beauty. And just like the trails offer diverse views of the state, the trails themselves have wonderful variety. In fact, there’s a fantastic boardwalk trek in Sandbridge that’s perfect just about any time of year. Here’s more on this unique trail:
Tucked away on the very southeastern point of Virginia, Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge is a true gem within the greater Virginia Beach Area.
Since its beginnings in 1938, the area has been preserved and managed by the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service.
This preservation ensures that visitors and residents alike can enjoy over 9,000 acres of sand dunes, marshes, ocean front, and forests.
So what’s the best way to enjoy the great outdoors of Back Bay?
Step onto the Dune Trail, a trek through the unique sand dunes and marshes so characteristic of this area.
As the boardwalk meanders through the sandy terrain, you’ll catch unforgettable glimpses of the oceanfront.
As you continue along the boardwalk, you’ll have access to educational stations and lookout points designed to further your knowledge about the unique wildlife.
You can also walk along the seashore for an enjoyable day at the beach without many tourists.
As you continue your hike, be sure to keep on the lookout for the many critters of Back Bay, both small and big!
No matter how you choose to spend your time at this coastal haven, you’ll be in for an unforgettable day.
The Dune Trail is just one of five trails available in Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Also located nearby is the pristine False Cape State Park, which offers even more wildlife viewing opportunities.
