Little Hunting Creek is an 11-square-mile watershed located on the east side of Fairfax County that drains to the Potomac River. Paul Spring Branch, North Branch and South Branch are the creek’s major tributaries. The headwaters of Little Hunting Creek are located in Huntley Meadows Park, and much of the land in the Little Hunting Creek watershed was once owned by George Washington. The original name for his home was Little Hunting Creek Plantation, which was later changed to Mount Vernon.
