Trip Advisor So much fun seeing the Wild Ponies
Jul 29, 2014 by: John P from Fairfax, Virginia
We thoroughly enjoyed our day here visiting this beautiful area. The beaches, dunes, etc. make a wonderful landscape and then seeing all the wild ponies throughout the Park added to the enjoyment.

Trip Advisor A Whole days worth of Adventure!

The Assateague Island Visitors Center got us started on our way. Bayside is where we watched the kite surfers, kids crabbing, canoeing, Dunes Trails ,and Forest Trails. Oceanside is where there was swimming with lifeguards. fishing, camping and best of all, we got to see the Wild Horses of Assateague Island. Which made for a Awesome day trip to the Island.

We were under the impression that there would be wild horses just running everywhere, but that's not the case. You have to pay to enter the park, then we went to the visitor center to get information on where the horses are. We were informed that the horses stay in the shades areas during the day but if you pay for a guided tour you are guaranteed to see them. To me it just seems like a money maker.

If your in the area, you have to visit, beautiful beach, not heavily used, and the ponies are beautiful...what a fabulous experience this beach was, and a lovely park!

It was strange but interesting to be driving or walking and suddenly come upon horses. Of course we took pictures and then just enjoyed watching them. The national seashore also has three short hiking trails, each of which were a half mile long. Each trail focuses on a different ecosystem: the marsh, the forest, and the dunes, respectively. We totally enjoyed walking these trails. We found all of them to be very well kept and are completely wheelchair accessible. The downside was that dogs are not welcome on the trails. Everything was very clean and beautiful. We would highly recommend visiting here.
