Finding the Park

Huntley Meadows Park has three entrances.  Each presents a different experience. 

The main trail, the Norma Hoffman Visitor Center, and the wetland boardwalk are at 3701 Lockheed Blvd, Alexandria VA 22306.  The stone dust trail and boardwalk combine for a 1.8 mile trek. This entrance has a large parking lot, and during Visitor Center open hours there is access to restrooms, an exhibit area, and staff naturalists.

The entrance at 6901 South Kings Highway, Alexandria Va.,  leads to a paved, one-mile woodland hike-bike trail that ends at a wetland viewing area.  There is a small parking area immediately off of South Kings Highway.  There is no Visitor Center, restroom, or staffing at this entrance. 

Historic Huntley is at 6918 Harrison Lane, Alexandria Va.  The mansion is open for Saturday tours from late April to October, and the grounds are open March to November. 

Due to known issues with GPS units, please use the street address if following GPS when coming to the park.
