About the Event
$5. Complete loop of 9 miles, 500 ft. ascent/descent; shorter out-and-back options available.
Meet at Roosevelt Island Parking lot (3/4 mile from Rosslyn Metro Station; limited parking available). With countless hikes beckoning in nearby mountainous areas, there just aren’t enough Saturdays in the year for us to do justice all the surprisingly great local hikes within metropolitan DC. This is one of the best. Our route from Roosevelt Island crosses Key Bridge and follows the C&O Canal Towpath west to Chain Bridge. From there, we cross to the Virginia side and return along the Potomac Heritage Trail, traipsing high over the bluffs and low banks along the river shore.
