Beaver Pond and Great Blue Heron Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Accotink Bay Wildlife Refuge was created in 1979 by Fort Belvoir to protect the land surrounding Accotink Bay on the Potomac River. The 1360-acre refuge has 12 miles of trails and is home to Accotink Creek, marshes, ponds, and forests.
It is well known for excellent birding for migratory birds and shorebirds; both bald eagles and peregrine falcons may also be observed. Beyond birds, hikers may see beavers, snakes, turtles, and frogs in the refuge."
