Fort Washington has stood as silent sentry defending the Nation's Capital, for over 180 years. As technologies advanced so did Fort Washington. Fort Washington is one of the few remaining Seacoast Forts in its original designs.

This is a great trail, with history to boot. Walk throughout the Fort, down to the lighthouse and around the wood line the in compass the waterline around the park up to some other hidden bunkers.

Nice walk around the old fort and river. River trail nearby needs some TLC. The batteries and fort are all worth checking out.

Fun to walk around, but there are limited things to do and see.

The Park is free in the winter months (we went in October). The Fort was interesting but watching to bald eagles soaring over the Fort was even better. We hike along the river trail (wasn't well maintained) and then looped back to the Fort along the park rode. Around 3 miles in total. Nice place to get some American history and a good walk.
