Though not long, the trail at Bush Mill Stream is a valued resource for denizens
of Virginia’s Northern Neck. Bring binoculars for bird-watching or a picnic
lunch to enjoy on your leisurely descent through mixed forest to the marshy
banks of the preserve’s namesake Chesapeake Bay tributary.
For those of you back at work, take a moment to relax and join us on our nature hike.
Here is the start (pets allowed on leash - that's good, since we have one!)
Trail "map" Blue = easy. Orange = just a little longer with an extra view overlook.
Most of the trail is through the woods. Lots of mountain laurels. I would love to see them in bloom.
This is where we go though the marsh at the end. Usually we look over the walk and see little animal tracks down in the mud by the grasses.
We took the orange trail back and had this as our view at the overlook. Isn't it beautiful?
