Assateague Coast Guard Station and Lighthouse Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Head to Assateague Island, where you can walk along the crashing Atlantic shoreline on a protected beach. Visit a preserved Coast Guard station that’s still weathering the sands of time. Your return trip leads you astride the quieter shores of Toms Cove and an old fish-processing factory.

After your first hike a short drive takes you to the trailhead to reach the Assateague Island Lighthouse. Walk among wooded ancient dunes, then rise to reach the 1860s beacon, enhanced with views from its heights."
