I thought I would change up my usual hikes a bit and make this one urban :)
The arboretum is one of my favorite places to visit in DC. It is a little oasis in the city. Let's get together and take a long walk exploring everything it has to offer! I would like to do a large loop, including going down to the Anacostia. If there is a particular area you would like to visit, let me know in the comments so I can incorporate it into our route.
National Arboretum website
Length/Time: Count on 2-3 hours (about 5 miles) with the option to turn around whenever you would like.
Difficulty: Easy/Medium: There will be some elevation changes and dirt trails.
Leash Policy: On-leash
Food/Water: Bring some water for you and your pup. We won't stop for lunch, but bring a snack if you like.
Footwear: Walking/running shoes or sturdy hiking sandals (straps front and back - no flip flops). Hiking boots work as well, but aren't necessary.
Weather: If it looks like heavy rain or storms I will cancel. I will cancel at least an hour before the hike if the weather seems questionable.
