Easy hike, cherry blossoms at Kenwood neighborhood, Chevy Chase MD

  • April 6, 2013 · 3:00 PM

For anyone who hasn't visited the Kenwood neighborhood during cherry blossom season, you're in for a treat. The gracious streets are lined on each side with 100+ year old cherry trees, often creating a feeling like walking through fluttering pink tunnels. The peak bloooming might be over by April 7, but then it becomes like a soft pink "snowfall" as the petals drift down. Neighborhood kids sell bad lemonade, brownies and dog biscuits, the ice cream truck does roaring  business and generally everyone strolls around admiring the trees and the beautiful houses. Bring your camera!!

We'll meet at the grassy traffic circle at the intersection of Brookside Drive and Kenwood Ave. Give yourself extra time to find a parking space (street parking available on most of the side streets but you might not find a spot right away). 

A sunny day makes it perfect, so if it's raining on Saturday we'll meet on Sunday at the same time (3 PM). If the weather is iffy on Saturday, check the website or send me an email or cellphone number and I'll send you a message by 12 noon.

This is definitely a leashed walk as there will be lots of people and slow-driving cars.

    It was a perfect day for walk with pups though it was too early for the cherry blossoms. Thanks Agi for coordinating this event.

    I just checked and unfortunately the flowers are just beginning to open so it won't be as spectacular as the photo. But still a very nice place for a walk. And the weather tomorrow afternoon should be beautiful

    FYI, closest street address to our meeting location is 6012 Brookside Drive, Chevy Chase, MD. We'll meet in the grassy traffic circle right in front of that house.

    Hi, Alex. I don't have a street address. See above - there's a traffic circle (like a tiny park with grass and trees in the middle) at intersection of Brookside Drive and Kenwood Ave. You turn off River road onto Brookside Drive just north of Little Falls Road...
    See you next weekend!
