For the 39th time, hikers (and non) will gather in Georgetown to start a new year of hiking with a Happy New Year Hike! We’ll walk along the C&O Canal about five miles to the Little Falls Pump Station, and back. You can walk at your own pace and turn around sooner (or later) if you want to do less (or more) than 10 miles (about 2 blisters). Bring snacks (or lunch) and water.
You too can usher in the New Year with this hike...and work off some of the holiday cheer you’ve accumulated. To join us, meet at 9:30 am on west side of Wisconsin Avenue, near the canal, south of M Street. There is a plaza next to the now-closed Papa-Razzi Restaurant (1066 Wisconsin Av, NW) and near the canal entrance to the Shops at Georgetown Park. There should be quite a crowd there; if not, you can start one. Leashed pets are also welcome.
Here are the pix from the 38th time this was done:
