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."
