Interpretive, paved trail, view of wetlands Wheel chair accessible - this is a short, paved trail through the woods adjacent to wetlands. Several interpretive signs on the flora and fauna of the area are posted along the way. A GREAT trail for young children to explore!

Overall, this is not a bad place to hike, especially if you have a newborn. Most of the Pohick Loop Trail is paved, which is great for pushing a stroller or jogger. Some of the other trails are not paved, specially the Accotink trail, but it's still really well maintained and hike-able with a stroller.
Although the list says the trail is only .5 miles, that's a little misleading. The Pohick Loop trails itself is only .34 miles long, but there are several adjacent trails that you can hike to and put in some decent mileage.
As a caution, do be careful hiking here because of its close proximity to FT Belvoir there are signs warning of potential unexploded ordinance off the trails. Also, one of the trails leads into the FT Belvoir training area (which is restricted).
