First Landing Park

First Landing State Park is a real Park in Virginia Beach. It is a Maritime (Seaside) Forest encompassing the approximate site of the First Landing in America of English Settlers in 1607. They made Landfall here, then sailed up the Chesapeake Bay to found Jamestown. I like to hike in the Forest, which is composed of a series of Ancient Sand Dunes interspersed with Cypress Pools and Swamps, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Chesapeake Bay, Lynnhaven River System, and Tidal Creeks and Marshes. There is a system of Trails for Hiking and some for Biking, and some fine Waters for Fishing and Kayaking which I will feature here. Click the Trail Sign picture to go to it’s page.
