A network of roads from the site’s military days forms the basis for the trails and a wildlife drive at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
Approximately 4 miles of flat, gravel roads are reserved for foot traffic only, and provide access to scenic views of forests, wetlands, and open water. These trails are accessible from the main parking lot. The wildlife drive is a one way, 2 mile loop that guides visitors through a variety of habitats within the refuge. This loop is open to foot traffic, vehicles and bicycles. The wildlife drive and walking trails are subject to seasonal closures to minimize stress on nesting and breeding wildlife or to facilitate land management activities.
