Woodland trail along a stream in Glover Archbold park

A Day in the Forest

Immerse Yourself in Nature

Follow Washington Walks into the woods of western Washington, D.C. on an 11-mile guided hike through forested National Parklands, popping in and out of neighborhoods you know--but via routes you do not. 

Bring your own water and snacks/food.  Participants will stop midpoint to use the restroom, relax a bit, and enjoy lunch together. 

Beautiful Scenery, Rugged Terrain

This day-long immersion in D.C. nature includes rugged terrain.  Wear hiking shoes and be prepared to walk uphill and down, climb some stairs, and possibly cross a stream on rocks.  The route will often be uneven and/or bumpy. 

NOTE:  The hike will start and conclude at Parking Lot 1 located across from Peirce Mill (2401 Tilden Street, NW)
