Cherry blossom hike

  • Apr 3, 2010 · 10:30 AM
  • Smithsonian metro station, mall exit

Sorry for the late notice but things have been hectic. But I hope many of you would join for a hike to see the cherry blossoms and enjoy the beautiful spring weather this weekend. I WILL BE IN FRONT OF ESCALATORS AT MALL EXIT. Walk to tidal basin from smithsonian mall exit, walk around tidal basin towards FDR memorial and after passing it continue along the basin, stop for break at Jefferson memorial, walk down western side of Hains point peninsula (Ohio Drive) and then go around Hains point and return to Smithsonian mall exit along the eastern side of Hains point peninsula. Lunch at east potomac park (bring picnic lunch). Estimated return time 3pm. total distance: just under 7 miles. You can see the route map here:

    great day for a walk. Excellent scenery. Discovered a pedestrian walkway on bridge across tidal basin from Hains point to L'Enfant plaza. Lots of cherry trees all along Ohio Dr. great company.
