The Wildlife Refuge and Dyke is a hidden little gem on the Potomac in Alexandria, VA!
What exactly can you see and do here?
It offers a nice little trail, about 1 mile each way, around the Potomac River. It is off of the beaten path and is almost hidden right next to the Belle Haven Marina. The marina is the perfect spot to rent a sailboat after a nice nature walk!
This trail attracts bird watchers from all over due to the rare species and exotic birds that refuge there.
It is also really nice if you are taking your dog for a walk through there because there are lots of spots to let them take a little dip in the water. It is great for a hot day! I also always see children dipping their feet in and enjoying the beach areas that the trail offers.
At the end of the trail you walk along a dock that goes for about a quarter of a mile over the Potomac. It is really cool to look below and see all different types of fish, turtles, water snakes and all types of wild life. It is also popular for people to go fishing here.
It is a beautiful walk and there is a lot to see. It is also very enjoyable to not have many people around and be secluded on the water and with nature. This is one little adventure that will not be a disappointment and is a great place to explore the outdoors while finding peace of mind.
