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. Hours vary by season.

I might have enjoyed the ride except that it was freezing. We turned around, vowing to ride the length in warmer weather.

The beauty of the trail amazed me. Especially since it was winter. It was cold so we only rode about half.

Great easy walking trail in the wetlands. Lots of beautiful scenery particularly in fall. Best for walks with kids

Rode from Maryland through DC to connect to trail. Headed south to Jones Point Park at the base of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. Very nice and calming park with a small playground and restrooms.

Fun a lot of little hilly areas before the steep climb before Mt Vernon. I logged 26 plus miles was a nice ride.
