The Accokeek Creek Boardwalk traverses the marshland along the Potomac River and offers spectacular views of the Virginia shoreline, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate. Accessed via Bryan Point Road, the boardwalk (just over 1,000 feet long) crosses Accokeek Creek. In 2010 the Alice Ferguson Foundation, worked with several agencies and the National Park Service to create a 2,800 foot living shoreline to prevent further erosion of the marsh and to protect the plants and animals that call it home.
