Historic Scenic Jogging Trails

The United States Capitol building in Washington DC, USA

According to The Official Washington DC Tourist Center (https://washington.org), when Pierre Charles L’Enfant laid out the city plans for the nation’s capital, he included wide avenues, public squares and grand buildings.  Washington DC is mostly flat and home to many trees, rivers, creeks and canals, making the city a runner’s dream.”  The very best areas for jogging and running are as follows:

The scenic National Mall where runners will see many famous monuments including The War Memorial, The Washington Monument, The African American Museum, The Lincoln Memorial and many other memorials.

The C&O Canal aka The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal connects the Eastern Seaboard with the Great Lakes and the Ohio River.  This C & O Canal, conveniently located in Georgetown, stretches 184.5 miles through DC and onward to other states.

Jogging the steps of  The Watergate Hotel.  We understand that the steps were built to impress the visiting dignitaries arriving in DC by boat.  Runners can build stamina and endurance running up these steps.

Rock Creek Park , the oldest and largest urban park in the national park system.

Hains Point at the East Potomac Park and is a man made island.  It’s a 3 mile loop around from the tip of the peninsula and back

Anacostia Riverwalk is a 20-mile trail that runs on both sides of the Anacostia River.

Georgetown Waterfront offers a nice breeze from the river and is home to Georgetown University.  Many dignitaries to include congressmen and congresswomen live in Georgetown.

Mount Vernon Trail which leads to President George Washington’s Home and scenic land is a 19 mile path of wooded areas, wetlands, yacht clubs and historic neighborhoods like Old Town Alexandria

The Glover Archbold Park is a stretch of forest running from the Tenley Circle to the Potomac River in Georgetown.  Lots of wildlife such as deer and migratory birds hang here.
