Point of Rocks Park offers 3 miles of trails providing access to several habitats, including eastern deciduous forest, the banks of the Appomattox River, and tidal freshwater marsh. The forest edge may be entered from several parking lots behind the tennis courts where there are also picnic facilities. The trails through the forest offer viewing access for a variety of typical eastern birds. As the forest trails yield to the freshwaters of Ashton Creek Marsh, the trail continues as a floating boardwalk. The boardwalk provides an excellent place to study a number wetland birds and dragonflies. Watch the marsh for wetland songbirds such as swamp sparrows and common yellowthroat in addition to the waders and bald eagles.
