Theodor Roosevelt Island and Women in Military memorial Hike

Update: I am not feeling well and went to the doctors office today. Phyllis, one of our assistant organizers have volunteered to lead the hike this evening. I have discussed the route with her and she will be there at the parking lot to greet you and lead the group on the hike today. Enjoy! 

Join us for a after work hike/walk close to DC. We will be exploring the Theodor Roosevelt Island, walk on the Mount Vernon trail and check out the Women in Military Memorial and walk back to the Theodore Roosevelt Island parking lot.


This will be about 5.5 miles (2.5hr walk). Please bring water and a snack if needed. Wear comfortable shoes. Leave enough travel time during rush hour. We meet at 5:45pm and start walking at 6pm. Please do not be late.


Meeting location: Park at the Theodore Roosevelt Island parking lot. The GPS coordinates are:[masked], [masked] This parking lot is only accessible by the north bound lanes on GW Parkway. Meet the group at the footbridge to the island.

Getting there by car: Click on location above where you can add your address and get directions. Theodore Roosevelt Island parking lot can only be reached from the northbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Shortly after the Memorial Bridge, follow the sign to turn right to enter the parking lot.

Getthing there by Metro: Arrive at Rossyln Metro before 5:30pm using www.wmata.com. From the station, walk towards Key Bridge. Before crossing the key bridge, turn right on to a a short connecting trail, which leads downhill from the downstream side of the bridge, across the parkway, and into the parking lot.


Hope you can join us.

    Would it be possible to bring a dog along? (well-trained, friendly, and leashed of course)

    Where would we end up? How do we get back without a car? I'm not too familiar with that area.

      The hike starts and ends at the Theodore Roosevelt Island parking lot. You would park your car there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
