Washington, DC

Mount Vernon Trail

Part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail. A 17 mile paved hiking/cycling path in Northern Virginia that travels between Rosslyn and George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon.  The section closer to DC runs by the airport. Points-of-interest include George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon, Olde Town Alexandria, Arlington National Cemetery, and the local’s favorite Gravelly Point (at the north end of National Airport’s main runway).
