Project Description

Historic Community Trail, Cape Charles, VA

Master Plan Development – Land Studio has been working with the Town of Cape Charles since 2008 to develop a community trail network. The town is 4.4 square miles and sits on a peninsula of land bordered by the Chesapeake Bay and King’s Creek. The trail links area residents and visitors to the town’s harbor, business district, beach, primary town park, and museum. Within the town’s core historic area, the trail is approximately 4-miles long. Its design and alignment take advantage of opportunities to highlight the town’s historic character, improve its streetscapes, and link the entire town to its various destinations. It identifies opportunities for nodes, gateways, and vistas that build on the preservation and interpretation of the town’s historic character. Read More>>
