New Beach Access Opening Next Week
Just in time for fall fishing season – more beach access!
The National Park Service has just announced the opening date for a newly constructed Off Road Vehicle Ramp between Salvo and Avon. With Cape Point re-opening for ORV access last week, this is more great news for fall fishing enthusiasts.
With a permit available from the National Park Service, vehicles will be able to access the beach through Ramp 25, which will open on September 11. This ramp will eventually include a paved parking area to provide additional pedestrian access, as well as improved access for visitors with disabilities.
Ramp 25 is the first of several such beach access projects planned for the Seashore’s future. With revenue from the Off Road Vehicle Permits, the Park Service has the opportunity to complete this and other projects to promote visitor access along the Seashore and provide a variety of use experiences.
