The George Washington Memorial Parkway is a carefully planned scenic route to the nation's capital. From the north it curves alongside the Potomac Gorge, highlighting its steep cliffs and rich woods. From the south it is a broad avenue punctuated with monuments to America's history. Overlooks and picnic areas dot its length, providing places to rest and admire the land it passes through. There is no visitor center on the parkway itself. Information, brochures, maps, and National Park Passport stamps are available at parkway headquarters and at visitor centers at Arlington House, Glen Echo Park, and Great Falls Park.

Very overgrown, especially at the western part of the trail

Nice and flat trail walk. I took my dog. The marsh is pretty

Beautiful Island and memorial

Nice trail with a few technical spots. The weeds were starting to grow around the single track portion of the trail but the trail itself was packed and runnable. Few rocks but no hand over foot. Great little scenic trail near the city. Ran it before work.

Nice walking trail. very easy hike with lots of greenery and a couple of chances to get some good views of Georgetown and DC. A quieter area (when DCA airport doesn't have arrivals coming in over the island) in the midst of Arlington and DC.
