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.
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.
