Guard Shore Tract, Saxis Wildlife Management Area

The Guard Shore Tract of Saxis Wildlife Management Area offers a myriad of possibilities for wildlife viewing depending upon the time of year. The extensive open bay ecosystem provides a vast viewing area to scan for wading birds, waterfowl, terns and gulls. Mudflats and sand spits exposed at low tide may attract feeding shorebirds, especially during migration. The site's maritime loblolly pine stand may offer endless migrant passerine viewing possibilities.

paddle imageGreenbackville Harbor

Route Description:

Explore the shoreline of Chincoteague Bay near Greenbackville Harbor. The harbor at Greenbackville is a well used waterman's marina, and paddlers must be aware of power boat traffic. Use the boat ramp nearest the harbor exit rather than the one you pass immediately upon entering the marina area. Paddle out of the harbor and past the breakwater. Turn right (Southwest) and head back toward the coastline. As you paddle past the fringe marshes that line the coast, keep an eye out for Powell Creek and then Swans Gut. Access to these creeks is limited by the tide, but they provide excellent opportunities for coastal exploration and wildlife viewing. Return to the boat ramp by retracing your route along the coast.
