Details

After-work urban hike ~ our hike will take us through part of Arlington National Cemetery, by the Iwo Jima memorial (http://www.nps.gov/gwmp/historyculture/usmcwarmemorial.htm) & the Netherlands Carillon (http://www.nps.gov/gwmp/historyculture/netherlandscarillon.htm), along the Mount Vernon trail (where we will be mindful of bikes and not block the path!), around Roosevelt Island, and back to Rosslyn. We'll mostly be on paved paths.

WHERE? Rosslyn metro station -- when you exit the gates, look immediately to your left for the row of newspaper boxes (across from the bike rack); we'll meet there. We'll begin and end at the Rosslyn metro.

WHEN? Thursday, August 28 -- meet at 5:30 p.m., we'll begin walking promptly at 5:45 p.m.

HOW LONG? Approximately 5 to 5.5 miles, should take 2 to 2.5 hours.

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.
