Sites on this loop:
Great opportunities to view wildlife, specifically waterfowl, shorebirds, and gulls, abound along the Gloucester Loop. River channels, cordgrass marshes, tidal flats, and lakes with flooded snags and weedy coves are some of the aquatic habitats that attract water birds to this part of the Virginia coast. The wildlife watcher equipped with a canoe or kayak will find several venues to experience close proximity wildlife viewing. Deciduous woodlands and flower gardens add to the habitat diversity of the loop’s sites.
