Kiptopeke State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This unique park, which features sand dunes and extensive water views, sits on 536 acres on the farthest eastern stretch of Virginia: its Eastern Shore, which is a peninsula that runs between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
During the fall, you can go to the Bird Banding Station and observe their work. It is also home to a research area where birds of prey such as hawks and osprey are studied. If you fish from the pier, you don’t need a state fishing license. There are also 4 miles of hiking and biking trails, with four of the bike trails named after birds. Various programs are available, including fishing clinics, guided hikes, canoeing programs (for a fee), beach bonfires, and during the fall, weekly birding programs"
