The Northern Neck of Virginia is steeped in history and increasingly recognized for exceptional outdoor recreation opportunities, especially bicycling and paddling. For an intimate view of the tidal Potomac, book a trip through Virginia's watermen heritage tour program. And for bicyclists seeking to travel the entire PHT network, the program provides a way to arrange for transportation across the mouth of the Potomac between the Northern Neck Heritage Trail bicycling route and the southern Maryland PHT bicycling route.
