Birding at Lake Accotink

Lake Accotink is one of the best kept secrets for birding in Northern Virginia. Not only does it host a lake but it has a beautiful paved trail which is a section of the Cross County Trail (CCT). This paved trail meanders through a deciduous forest following Accotink Creek with several  fully accessible bridge crossings.  This well maintained resource allows easy access for everyone and provides entrance to some of the best bird habitat in the county. Lake Accotink offers birding programs for all levels. Whether you are a beginner or and expert Lake Accotink will provide a great birding experience.
