ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Explore Virginia’s gorgeous Eastern Shore by bike with a small group of like-minded adventurers for a scenic learning journey. Ride the biking trails of Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague National Seashore, travel across the Eastern Shore Peninsula from the Atlantic Ocean to the Chesapeake Bay, and look for wild ponies, egrets and horseshoe crabs.


Highlights

• Ride Chincoteague’s well-kept paths and learn about the area’s Saltwater Cowboys and Wild Ponies."

• Visit Kerr Place, a 200-year-old home built in the Federal style. Detailed finishing and vibrant colors reflect Ker's fine taste for his period.

• Pedal to the Wallops Island Navy and NASA facility to learn about dune ecology at a deserted and pristine beach restricted to the public.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Biking 9-27 miles, 3-5 hours a day at moderate pace over mostly flat terrain. Participants encouraged to bring own bike. Rentals available.
