Block House Point Conservation Park
Blockhouse Point Conservation Park is an area rich in the natural and cultural history of the Potomac Valley. This approximately 630-acre park contains a variety of exceptional resources.
This park is one of our Best Natural Areas. Natural features include mature upland forest, floodplain forest, palustrine wetlands, streams, river-rock outcrops, at least nine species of threatened, endangered, or watchlist plants, a diversity of wildlife and grand views of the Potomac River and C&O Canal.
Within Blockhouse Point Conservation Park are numerous trails that are part of the Civil War complex for which the park is named. They were once used as a wartime transportation system for supplies.
