Site CBR03: Bull Run Marina

Description

The Bull Run-Occoquan Trail is accessible via a trailhead located at the park. As well as offering another access point, a stroll around the reservoir offers opportunities to see a variety of eastern woodland birds, particularly in late spring and early summer, and waterfowl. This is a great spot to watch for bald eagles on the reservoir.
