“Nice out-and-back to views of the Accotink Bay”— Dave Beck
A nice loop of the southeastern section of Accotink Bay Wildlife Refuge.
Take the lower section of the Loop Trail to the Basin Trail where your out-and-back starts. Just about halfway to the end of the trail is a spur trail marked Basin Overlook where you get a better view of the bay. The Basin Trail ends at a gravel parking lot and then you turn around and head back. On your way back, take the upper section of the Loop Trail and Beaver Pond Loop Trail by staying to the right as the trail forks.
