This is a nice section of the Mount Vernon Trail just south of Old Town Alexandria. Back when I lived in the area, I enjoyed trail running and bicycling here, with pretty views of the Potomac River and the marsh/wildlife area.

This is an extremely easy trail. It is entirely paved, with a few small bridges. The trail is most popular for walking, running, and (regular) bicycling. Regular users are considerate of the shared space, and cyclists are good about warning runners and walkers when they are approaching.

Pretty walk and very easy. The boardwalk leads to a nice view at the end. Heavily trafficked.
