Route 1 directions:
Take the Capital Beltway to the Route 1 South exit near Alexandria. Follow Route 1 past Beacon Mall. Route 1 will go down a long hill. Lockheed Blvd is at the traffic light at the bottom of the hill. Turn right onto Lockheed Blvd and follow it until its end at Harrison Ln. The main entrance to Huntley Meadows Park will be on your left.
Van Dorn St. South directions:
This may be an easier route during the Woodrow Wilson Bridge construction. Take the Capital Beltway to the Van Dorn Street exit just east of the Springfield interchange. Turn right onto Van Dorn Street South and follow it 2.1 miles until the road ends at Telegraph Road. Turn left and go only 2 short blocks to the first traffic light (South Kings Highway). Turn right onto South Kings Highway. Follow that road 1.5 miles to the second traffic light (Harrison Street.) Turn right onto Harrison Street and follow it less than a mile to the end where it turns left onto Lockheed Boulevard. Instead of turning left go straight onto the entrance road to Huntley Meadows Park. Don't stop at the Hike Bike Trail Parking on South Kings Highway as it does not connect directly to the main park entrance.
