The Rail Switch Nature Trail lies on the edge of the Roanoke River. The trail is located a stone's throw from downtown but it plunges users into an immersive natural escape. Beginning at the edge of the Port'o Plymouth Museum on Water Street, the trail follows a former railroad corridor into the riverfront woods and marshes. Boardwalks and observation areas provide a vantage point from which to observe the resident wildlife. Birds abound, including waterfowl and songbirds. The trail comes to an end on Main Street, and users can retrace their steps back to the starting point at the museum.
