America's National Historic Trails

“America’s National Historic Trails: Walking the Trails of History” takes readers on a journey of the nation’s 19 National Historic Trails, including the Chesapeake Trail.

ANNAPOLIS — Chesapeake Conservancy is pleased to announce that its partner — the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail — is featured in a new book released this month by Rizzoli International Publications in association with the Partnership for the National Trails System. Written by Karen Berger and photographed by Bart Smith, “America’s National Historic Trails: Walking the Trails of History” takes readers on a journey of the nation’s 19 National Historic Trails, including the Chesapeake Trail.

The Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail (Chesapeake Trail) is a 3,000-mile-long water and land trail that highlights the landscapes of the American Indians who lived in the Chesapeake region, the voyages of Captain John Smith and his crew from 1607–1609, and the natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Since the trail’s founding in 2006, Chesapeake Conservancy has assisted in increasing public access and protecting the land along it.
