Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands TrailCOA – Elizabeth City
Absorb the Beauty of the Wetlands
The Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail (also known as the boardwalk that runs behind College of The Albemarle (COA) – Elizabeth City) incurred damage from the storm that came through the area on Monday, April 13, 2020. While the boardwalk is still available for public use, entrances will be limited until repairs can be made. You can access the boardwalk at the entrance located behind the Agribusiness program’s greenhouse, as well as the entrance located closest to Sentara Albemarle Medical Center. The entrance that is unavailable has been blocked off by maintenance.
Open to the Community
On Feb. 5, 2019, COA reopened the Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail after renovating 750 feet of its 3,440-foot boardwalk that runs behind COA – Elizabeth City. We encourage the community to visit, take a walk and enjoy the scenery.
The Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail is now part of the Kids in Parks Program, a national campaign by the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation to promote children’s health. This addition to the trail provides fun brochures with activities for the whole family.
The COA Foundation is currently raising funds for improvements to the trail. Please help us reach our $50,000 goal by designating a gift to the “Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail”:
