After work urban hike - into the woods

  • Jul 25, 2013 · 6:15 PM
  • Cleveland Park metro

Once this heat wave breaks (hopefully soon!), join me for an after-work urban hike ~ our hike will take us through Rock Creek Park on the Melvin Hazen and Soapstone Valley trails. We'll mostly be on trails, with some walking on city streets in Cleveland Park.  There will be a few hills and MANY stream crossings (with stepping stones across the streams).

Leashed dogs are welcome.

We'll begin and end at Cleveland Park. If interest we can have dinner afterwards in the neighborhood.

WHERE? 3599 Connecticut Ave (outside the Cleveland Park metro, east side of Conn.)

WHEN? Thursday, July 25, 6:15 p.m.

HOW LONG? Approximately 3 1/2 miles, should take 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

BRING WATER -- it's hot out there!

CANCELLATION POLICY: Heavy rain or thunderstorms will cancel; if the forecast looks bad, I will email those who have signed up.  Check the meet up site before leaving for the hike.

I will email my contact information out to those who have signed up by Wednesday night.

E-mail Phyllis with any Qs.

    Can I get someone's contact info? It's my first time joining an event from this group and I'm afraid I won't be able to find you all at the metro this evening. Thanks in advance!

    Sorry to the dropout. Stuck at work, issue almost resolved, but don't think I will make it to DC from MD in time. :( Enjoy

    The hike starting point is barely a block away from the best pizza slices in DC - at Vace’s at 3315 Connecticut Ave (and only $2)

    These Phyllis-led after-work hikes are the linchpin of my triathalon training. (The beer triathalon, not the other kind).

    • Phyllis

      Ah, yes, training for the walk, beer + dessert event.
