This trail and overlook are only accessible from the Mockingbird Trail, in the parks southern corner. The overlook does not provide access to the beach. From this fenced overlook one can see the bay, the high bridges and the fishing pier to the north. Offshore you can see the arc of nine large cargo ships made of concrete that were sunk just off the beach in water so shallow that much of the hulls rise above the water. The World War II-era vessels were placed here in 1949 to form a breakwater around the Kiptopeke Ferry Terminal, where ferries from Little Creek, across the Chesapeake Bay, docked for fifteen years prior to the opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in 1964.
