There are six different marked, colored trails in Janes Island State Park. All are situated in the more than 30 miles of water trails that dissect a 2900 acre Chesapeake Bay salt marsh island. Shallow bays, mares and low vegetation are plentiful. Most of the waterways are protected from wind and current so all levels are able to access this state park. There are kayaks and canoes to rent if you do not have your own.

UpsideSix trails. Thirty miles total, some are as short as 1.75 miles. Usually protected from wind in most places (except Brown Trail). Trails very well marked with color and shape specific reflective aluminum signs. Floating kayak launch ramp is exceptional. You can also camp at one of the Park's 104 campsites, five mini-cabins, four full service cabins, or rent the conference center which will sleep sixteen. CommentOutstanding tidal marsland/beach paddling.
Janes Island is near the paddle trails on Smith Island, MD and Tangier Island, VA. Between the three locations there are approximately sixty miles of great, senic paddling.
