Walk along the island’s pine forest to Assateague Point on the Woodland Trail. Make it to the end of the trail to an overlook for a view of the wild Chincoteague Ponies or take a leisurely pace and look for woodpeckers among the trees. This paved trail forks off into another trail, the Bivalve Trail, that is only open to foot traffic. The Bivalve Trail will bring you through maritime forests to an area perfect for clamming. Both trails offer a unique view of the nation’s only pony island.
