The Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail is a .7 mile, moderate difficulty hiking trail, that takes hikers around a loop through several different environments. These include a cedar thicket on former farmland, a mature forest, an early forest, a mowed hayfield, and a shrub area. Interpretive signs along the trail and a small pamphlet help explain what kinds of plants and birds hikers may expect to see. The trail passes two bird observation blinds, the gazebo, and near the blockhouse. The gazebo offers spectacular views of the surrounding Rye Cove and the Purchase Ridge. The trail is part of the statewide Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail system which may be accessed from the Birding and Wildlife area of this program.
