Farnham Creek Public Landing

Description

This small, tranquil site offers a secluded boat launch to bird from canoe or kayak on Farnham Creek, a Rappahannock River tributary. The tidal creek is surrounded by largely coniferous forest that dominates its shorelines. The woods can be packed with warblers, woodpeckers, vireos, and numerous other birds during the breeding season. Osprey, wading birds, bald eagles, and wintering waterfowl can be seen foraging in this secluded creek.
