Huntley Meadows Park: Fairfax County Wildlife Jewel

Tucked away in the bustle of Fairfax County’s Hybla Valley is Huntley Meadows Park, a secluded 1,425 acre wildlife oasis of forests, meadows and wetlands.  In fact, this is one of the rarest habitats left in Fairfax County.

From along the 1/2 mile boardwalk wetland trail, or from the wildlife observation tower, you can spy more than 200 species of birds, dragonflies, frogs, beavers and herons.

Huntley Meadows is known for its bird watching, of course, but it’s a great spot for a walk along its 2 mile interpretative trail, a bike ride or just to take a break from the frenzy of the day and relax.

Huntley Meadows offers an interesting Visitor Center with exhibits, as well as a classroom and auditorium.   There is no shortage of wonderful activities, either, including crafts, nature walks, wagon rides and more.
