The Southern Tip Bike & Hike Trail runs parallel to the approach for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel for 2.6 miles at the southern end of Virginia's Eastern Shore. Although never more than a stone's throw from busy US 13, the trail offers a sense of seclusion as it winds through forest and adjacent agricultural fields.
The trail connects the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Widlife Refuge with Kiptopeke State Park, so flora and fauna are always in abundance. Hikers and bikers can also sneak glimpses of the Chesapeake Bay along their trek, provided they are not too busy reading the interpretive signs dotting the trail's route.
The paved trail, which was built on the bed of the Old Cape Charles Railroad, is just the beginning of a longer proposed rail-trail extending from the trail's current endpoint at Cedar Grove Drive even farther north.
