Mathews Maritime Heritage Trail

The Mathews Maritime Heritage Trail (MMHT) is a partnership project between the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, VA Department of Conservation and Recreation, Recreational Trails Program, VA Institute of Marine Science and the Mathews Maritime Foundation, in order to preserve and document the maritime heritage of the coastal landscape of Mathews County, Virginia.

The pilot project, the East River Trail, maps historic and environmental sites, as well as public access areas along the East River. The trail includes history of the shores, wharves, packing houses, homes, churches, businesses, marinas, and shipyards.

A DVD of this trail is now available! Watch it before you go, and enrich your experience on the river.
