  • Kids, couples, dogs or solo..... this is a perfect place for a day hike a picnic or just go sit in the woods and be comfortable. The water is beautiful but you have to find it. The elevation is simple...  more »
  • Nice and easy, no major hills to climb, well manicured trails, great foliage, and Belmont Bay. Bridge over tidal area with loads of wildlife. Bring the kids and a camera.  more »

  • We visited during a busy Labor Day weekend, but we found plenty of opportunities to get away from the hustle and bustle. Restroom facilities at the visitor center were clean and fully functional, and maps were available to read. We hiked two of the trails from the visitor center; each walk totaled around a mile. Trails were free of debris, cleaned, and--in places of high water--elevated with beautifully crafted walkways. Wildlife roamed in and out of our sights during our 3-hour visit, but we did not see any bald eagles. We'll be back to try to see them!
  • I often pay vist with friends and family. Its trail gives you a magistic effect of hicking in a scary jungle. Theres a place for BBQ as well. Riverside view is amazing even during winter.
  • Great park to walk, bike and enjoy nature. There are several trails thru the woods and along the river with viewpoints to see birds, beavers, turtles and other animals. The visitor center has plenty of information about the park.
  • Stunning place. I was looking for bald eagles. Did not see any.
  • Great place for picnic, easy hiking loops, scenic Potomac river overview. Visitor center right where I parked with helpful Rangers and info center...as well as clean bathrooms.
