PCS to Fort Belvoir-Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Fort Belvoir Officers Club
Perched high overlooking the Potomac River the Fort Belvoir's Officer Club has one of the best views in all of Northern Virginia.

The Officers Club isn't the only place to enjoy time with Mother Nature on post. In fact Fort Belvoir which is comprised of over 8,500 acres also has over 1,300 acres of dedicated wildlife refuges as part of the base property as well. The largest piece of the refugee established in 1980 is the Accotink Bay Wildlife Refuge on the north post. The trail offers nine miles of walking paths through a variety of wildlife habitat and includes a handicap accessible Pohick Trail.

On the south post of Fort Belvoir is the Jackson Miles Abbott Wetland Refuge. Established in 1988 to protect a local wetland area the refuge is a great spot for local fisherman (with a valid VA fishing license) to cast a line in the pond. With a one mile paved walking trail and places to picnic it makes a great spot to exercise during lunch.

Both of these wildlife areas can be accessed by civilians as well as military families with proper identification and are open dawn until dusk all year. If you have orders to Fort Belvoir and are looking for an agent who knows their way around both inside and outside the gates of the post give Cindy Jones a call at  703-346-2213.  Put my personal experience of the Fort Belvoir and surrounding area to work for you.

Cindy, I've never thought of Fort Belvoir in terms of nature walks!  Are there any bicycle paths?

Cindy:  You've apparently scooped both Pat and I.  That Officer's Club certainly does have a gorgeous view.
