We spent 5 nights (April 7th through April 11th), at Chincoteague, Virginia. We visited Assateague Island several times during our stay.
On the morning of Day 5 of our vacation (Wednesday, April 10th) we rode our bicycles from our vacation home to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island, VA. It is approximately 2 miles from our Airbnb to the entrance booths.
We followed the bicycle trail to Woodland Trail. We rode the Woodland Trail, where we saw several wild horses in the marshland.
Leaving Woodland Trail we took the Black Duck Trail to the Wildlife Loop. We rode the Wildlife Loop. We saw egrets, birds and wild ponies.
For the first time since 2011, when we first visited the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, we saw wild horses in the marsh, while on the Wildlife Loop.
From the Wildlife Loop we returned to our airbnb.
We rode 11.69 bicycle miles in the morning.
