From Woodley Park to Georgetown Via the Woodlands
The route followed during this two-hour plus rugged ramble through northwest D.C. parkland is never far from city streets and busy neighborhoods, yet we guarantee participants will be hard-pressed to know exactly where they are much of the time, such is the remote and peaceful nature of the hiking trails traversed. All we’ll reveal is that the hike starts in Woodley Park and concludes in Georgetown.
Beautiful Scenery, Unexpected SitesBetween those two points, the scenery is picturesque, featuring creeks, woodlands, and unexpected sites like the New Zealand Embassy, Divine Science Church, and the park where renowned scientist and writer Rachel Carson enjoyed bird watching.
TAKE NOTE: this is not a casual stroll; it is a hike that covers rugged terrain. Participants should wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots and be prepared to walk uphill and down, climb some stairs, encounter potentially wet and slippery fallen leaves. The hike usually lasts two hours and 30 minutes.
