The Virginia Seaside Water Trail was developed about a decade ago and is hosted on the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program’s website.
During 2018, A-NPDC staff are working with partners to update the Seaside Water Trail and develop a unique Virginia Water Trails website for the convenience of visitors and locals alike. The new tri-region collaboration, Rural Coastal Virginia (RCVA), with the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck is focused on improving Ecotourism assets and co-promoting our similar green and blue assets. Long-term lans exist for developing a sister Bayside Water Trail that will link to the Captain John Smith Chesapeake Historic National Trail and other resources.
The new logo has been approved & the new website is live! Visit www.VirginiaWaterTrails.org, if you see anything that may need attention, please email [email protected], as the site is still actively being refined and updated.
