Nice hike, you get to see all of the historical buildings and monuments throughout Washington DC. just make sure not to go on a super hot day like I did lol

It's most beautiful when the cherry blossoms are out, but the crowds are intense.

Easy walk through the cherry blossoms and fishermen trying for catfish.

Great hike this time of year. When I do this hike again, I will try to hike it when there are fewer people.

Nice urban hike. We went during a rainy day with heavy fog which created deep and wide puddles. The area around the walkways was really muddy. We were not wearing the right shoes for it. Nevertheless, beautiful views of the monuments. Easy walk.

Biking this trail is great. Very diverse scenery throughout the duration of the ride. A nice mix of elevation changes and flat stretches.

Not a nice marked trail path. Found myself constantly walking on grass/uneven pavement and sometimes losing what “may be” the trail. Scenery was beautiful though

Great views absolutely beautiful. Lots of traffic and touristy but worth it.

Definitely recommend going during the Cherry Blossom festival.. beautiful!

It's always a pleasure to walk the mall

well marked, paved trail with some nice views of D.C. Plenty of options along the trail for detours (e.g. Four Mile Run). Good for running/biking/walkers. Minor elevation changes make this a good trail for beginners. Use regular trainers/sneakers on this route.

Went to D.C. For vacation, this was the highlight of my trip. The monuments are fantastic, it's amazing to be up close to our national history. Everything is in walking distance which is great. Only downside is the tourist, far too many people, especially if your trying to get a decent photo. Little bit of advice, go at night, less people and the lighting on the monuments look much better.

A definite must do. Very interesting.

The trail is great for walking or running. I've done this journey twice; once at night and once in the middle of a weekend day during the Cherry Blossom Festival. While the cherry blossoms are beautiful, the crowds are overwhelming. Our night walk of the tidal basin was very peaceful, and we only encountered a couple of people at each of the monuments/memorials. I wouldn't do the night time walk alone, however. This walk is one of my favorite things to do in DC, and is a great way to see some of the coolest spots in our nation's capital.

wonderful ride...a few pot holes, but it's DC:)

Always a great stroll especially during the Cherry Blossom Festival.

great ride with the family

In the middle of July, dress light and put on your favorite walking shoes. The walk can be exhausting with so much historical sight seeing and crowd managing. It's a great educational walk in regards to wanting to see how our country's government began. The integration of metro city life with traditional architectural buildings and garden life makes for a full day.

What's not to love about this scenic walk to the DC monuments? Perfect for walking or running!

Awful. Feel like I just got a tour of all the Starbucks in DC. Saw 2 monuments. Awful!!!!

It's an incredible walk, but most definitely stop at the botanic gardens.
