Photo walk and lunch at the Greenbelt National Park

I thought it would be nice to take a morning photo walk through the trails of this beautiful park. After we can sit around the picnic area and enjoy a good old brown bag lunch and discuss our photos and get to know one another. I will confirm if there is an entrance fee to the park. The closest Metro is 3 miles away so it is likely that you will need to drive to this meet up.

    Location is the sweet gum picnic area. When you first enter the park, take the main road till it comes to a split then turn right. Sweet gum is the first left and I'm near the back of the parking lot.

    Never been here. Need better directions to where main parking lot is.

    So I was thinking that we could meet at the main parking lot next to the field. There is a pavilion we can meet at but also keep an eye out for a green mustang. That's me.

    Does anybody know if the paths are paved or natural surface?

    • Mark S.

      So far as I can tell, the main roads are paved, not 100% on the paths. If I were to Hazzard a guess, probably. I've never been there before, I'd anyone else has heard anything, I'll defer to them.

    Sorry I have to pull out -- it sounds great. A friend is going to help me learn my brand new, tiny, powerful Olympus Four Thirds camera system. Can't turn down that offer! Enjoy.
