A decent day trip from Washington, but just ok. Not the park's fault, but the stinky Potomac is a disappointing site. Trails are well marked and pretty easy. No wildlife, but the visitors center is nice and educational. Recommend if you want an easy getaway from the city.
BEAUTIFUL park! Towards the water are tons of birds, since this is near a "highway" for migratory birds. Great trails, great views, and wonderfully maintained. Make time to visit here!

I absolutely love this place and never get tired of coming here. Great hiking trails and a very nice bike trail. If you're looking for a great place to escape for a few hours and catch a great sunset, this is it.

If you want to go on a hike and see gorgeous scenery, this is the place for you! We were able to get in about 8-10 miles of hiking and we missed one trail when we ran out of light! Definitely visit the bay at sunset and do not miss the Eagle Spur trail as that observation blind offers the... 更多
Mason Neck is a great park to go hiking! I came here in the winter and there was probably 6 inches of snow on the trails still, but that just made it more fun! We even got to see several bald eagles. It was only $5 for parking. It's close to DC, which makes it a nice escape from the... 更多
