Heading to the northern neck the end of next week and thinking about a day trip down to the bay bridge. My question is, are there any
areas where I can park my truck and trailer near the Virginia beach end to put in? I found a ramp where US 60 crosses it it looks like a long paddle for my teenagers from there to the pilings...
Thanks

Typically you would launch at Chic's Beach at the base of the bridge and parking there is limited to a few spots on the road in the neighborhood there. Not real easy with a trailer. The ramp you mention is good and there is good fishing in that whole area of the inlet. It's a little too long of a paddle from there to the bridge. Also, the end of next week is around a full moon, the currents will be really strong around the bridge tunnel and the small bridge at Lynnhaven Inlet where the ramp is. That can be pretty dangerous and I wouldn't recommend it unless your teenagers are very experienced in fast moving water.

Thanks for the info, probably just kept me out of a really bad situation! I've been to chic's beach but while driving a small car not the truck and trailer when va beach got way too crowded, I'll stick to the protected waters up around Reedsville then.
