Eastern Shore of Virginia Refuge Butterfly Trail is a 1.3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Cape Charles, Virginia that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for nature trips and birding and is best used from August until October.
Located at the tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, this area is one of the most important avian migration funnels in North America. Each fall the refuge is the scene of a spectacular drama as millions of songbirds and monarch butterflies and thousands of raptors converge on their voyage south.
Beautiful facility and nice trails. Friendly helpful staff. A really nice place for families, small children and field trips. We will be back in the fall to see the butterflies migrating.
