Mason Neck State Park and National Wildlife Refuge

Mason Neck State Park and National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide

"The state park and adjoining national wildlife refuge, both on a secluded peninsula in the southeastern corner of Fairfax County, provide a protected habitat for wildlife and some fine woodland and shoreline trails for hikers. Situated between Occoquan and Belmont Bays to the west and the Potomac River to the right, the 1,813-acre park and 2,227-acre refuge consist mostly of rolling woodlands.

The trails are generally well marked and well maintained, with those in the park using color-coded trail names. The trails are only lightly used because nearly all visitors head for the park’s waterfront visitor center and nearby picnic area. Be sure to stay on the trails, as some areas are striving to regenerate the woodlands and wildlife."
