Taking Advantage of Hiking Trails

Ward 7, take advantage of all the beautiful greenspace while getting in a good workout. Here is some information about a Hiking event with National Park Service.
Hike the Hiker-Biker Trail with a Ranger

The Hiker-Biker Trail which connects a number of Civil War forts in SE Washington is one of Washington DC’s best kept secrets and it is right here in your neighborhood! If you want a chance to hike the trail with a ranger and see the trail for yourself, join us for a series of hikes during the month of April. Each Tuesday for 3 weeks, beginning on April 4th we will

hike a section of the trail as a group. All hikes begin at 5:30 p.m. and will cover 4 to 5 miles. Plan to be on time because to cover this distance before dark, we have to start on time. Wear sturdy shoes and bring water.

Call (202) 426-7723 for more information.
