From Capital Beltway (Rte. I 495), follow Little River Turnpike (Rte. 236) east to first left on Hummer Road. Continue about 1/4 mile, passing Annandale Community Park on the left. Take next left, on Royce Street. The driveway for the nature center is the first left.
Additional parking is in Annandale Community Park. Upon entering the park from Hummer Road, take the right fork of the driveway and park in the lot adjacent to the Packard Center. Follow signs for a short walk through the woods to the nature center. The path to the rear of the parking lot does not have steps. The path leading in front of the Packard Center has steps with railings. Alternatively, you can bear left at the fork of the driveway into the park to the parking lot next to the shelter, playground and ball fields. Follow the marked paths behind the ball field or from the playground behind the shelter. Both paths are unpaved.
