Running though the cradle of the nation’s birthplace, the 21-site Coastal Northern Neck Loop of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail features a wide diversity of songbirds, wading birds, waterfowl, bald eagles and butterflies in a multitude of habitats—salt and freshwater marshes, croplands and open fields.


Northern Neck Heritage Trail Bicyclingcycling Route

Enjoy the beauty of the Northern Neck by bicycle. Come ride past the fishing villages and historic sites of our uncluttered land. We’re slower down here, and we like it that way. You will, too. The Northern Neck trail is part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail (PHT). Four relatively easy bicycle trails are available to tour which represent the essence of the Northern Neck. Additional information on touring the Northern Neck by bicycle is available through the Potomac Heritage Explorer site. Enjoy and have a safe journey.

Below are some links to suggestions for bicycling trips, developed through a project to illustrate Northern Neck segments within the PHT corridor.
