Crow’s Nest Natural Area Preserve

Crow's Nest ADA Accessible Canoe and Kayak launch

Crow's Nest is, simply, a beautiful place and considered highly significant from numerous standpoints. Topography is varied, with the high narrow ridgeline rising 160 feet above two tidally influenced creeks: Potomac and Accokeek. The peninsula is deeply dissected on both its northern and southern flanks by a series of deep ravines cutting into ancient coastal plain marine sediments and feeding tidal marshes along the bordering creeks. Crow's Nest also includes a shoreline birding/nature trail to viewpoints of Accokeek Creek, and an ADA-accessible canoe/kayak launch facility for the Crow’s Nest Water Trail.

Hours: Current hours for the Brooke Road access point are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. from early November to mid-March and from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. from mid-March to early
November. 

Admission: FREE

Accessibility: ADA-accessible canoe/kayak launch facility for the Crow’s Nest Water Trail is available.
