Mason Neck Overview
Mason Neck is a peninsula jutting into the Potomac River in southern Fairfax County, Virginia. Much of the area is parkland or a wildlife refuge. This protects its rural character though it is a short turn off of busy US Highway 1 through Lorton. There is residential development along Gunston Road and on the tip of the peninsula. Gunston Hall, the historic home of George Mason, is the most famous landmark in Mason Neck. Pohick Bay Regional Park, Mason Neck Sate Park, and Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge provide a variety of conservation and recreational functions. Pohick Bay Regional Park offers camping (convenient for visitors to Washington, DC) and boating on the Potomac River. The Sate Park and the National Wildlife Refuge offer many hiking trails and boardwalks over the marshes. The trails are especially popular with birdwatchers who come to observe Bald Eagles, hawks, and waterfowl inhabiting the surrounding marshes and wetlands.
