Conway Robinson State ForestJoin us for an easy 1.5 mile walk down the Boardwalk (ADA compliant) exploring Neabsco Creek. This creek has been settled for nearly 20,000 years, from the Paleo-Indians to today's residents, like us. In 1608, fish were so plentiful in the Potomac River that the English tried to catch dinner by swinging a frying pan from their boats.

In the mid-1700's, Northern Virginia's first industrial development was the Neabsco Iron Works located just upstream of the modern I-95 bridge. After cutting the forests for charcoal and tobacco, soil eroded and created the mudflats that we will cross.The views are spectacular, bring your camera and binoculars if you have them.
