Occoquan Wildlife Nature Preserve

Woodbridge, VA - Park

Occoquan Wildlife Nature Preserve is part of 3 wildlife preserves under the US Fish and Wildlife Service. It is 640 acres of protected lands and waters set aside to conserve America's fish, wildlife, and plants. These preserves are specifically protected areas for bald eagles. We were excited to see 1 bald eagle soaring. There is a sign showing which parts of one of the trails is blocked now as there are protected bald eagle nests right now! We parked in the main lot and took the 0.4 mile Fox Trail to the water's edge. There are tons of other paths you can take and there are lots of maps at the start of the trail to take with you or take a picture of. More about the amenities in the link below.
