So many nature trails for every one. In this tidal marsh they found several native american mss burrial ground. Many other interesting facts like this to be found. This is a tidal bay, so the salt water rises and receeds to this marsh which make for a very diverse wildlife community. Before you go on your hike we higly suggest putting on bug sray or be eaten alive, these mosquitoes have wingspans and a nasty bite! They are all over this island!
Directions: Go over the bridge from Chincoteague Island into the park entrance, fee is $5.00 a car
