Dyke Marsh Trail Mount Vernon

Alexandria, VA - Park

Dyke Marsh Trail felt worlds away from even the nearby GW Parkway! This little beach, with views of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and sailboats in the harbor was so much fun as a family. We skipped stones, learned about the Piscataway tribe and searched for shells. It’s only a 10 minute walk from parking at the Belle Haven Marina which has permanent restrooms! Put into google "Belle Haven Marina." If you put in the name of the park, google takes you to a random spot on the bike trail! 🅿️ There is parking in the marina or nearby. 🚻 2 sets of restrooms! They have some between the 2 large parking lots in Belle Haven Park and also permanent restrooms at the Marina.😷 Wider trail than others and not too busy even on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. ❌♿️ Not wheelchair or stroller accessible as there were larger rocks on the path.
