The Captina Creek Birding Trail is a do-it-yourself driving tour with signage at five stops within the Captina Creek Watershed.
These stops include include the marina at Powhatan Point, the Captina mainstream at Alledonia, Raven Rocks, the south fork of Captina Creek at Rainbow’s End and Dysart Woods.
Belmont County is home to a variety of special bird species, such as tropical migrating birds like the Northern Parula, spotted at Raven Rocks, the Hooded Merganser, seen overwintering at the Powhatan Point Marina, and the Belted Kingfisher, found all along the Captina corridor.
Although it is not a hiking trail, two of the sites have areas where visitors can take short walks.
