Beach to Bay Indian Trail

image
Local Native American names are evident in this region. The various tribes frequently moved from upland permanent villages to seasonal camps each year.

Following natural and land contours to facilitate walking or canoeing, they would move to coastal sites from the Atlantic Ocean to the Chesapeake Bay area each Spring. They traveled well-used trails to attend regional clan or tribal meetings, ceremonies or big game hunts.

Today, the Beach to Bay Indian Trail is a self-guided driving trail designated in 1993 as a National Recreation Trail by the U.S. Department of Interior. It recognizes the patterns established by the American Indians and followed by the first European immigrants. Many of these routes became the very roads we drive on today.
