Definately worth the trip. Much more crowded than I would prefer, but what I expected.

Definately worth the trip, I would have preferred running in the evening or early morning. The area was very crowded with tourists, wish there hadn't been protestors at the white house but some people don't care if they're ruining the experiences of others.

DC is gorgeous in the fall. Summer is hot. Spring is crowded.

The best hike to see all the Memorials and White House. Very easy, gets rather crowded at times. If you go during summer bring water and keep children/pets hydrated. Take your time, it's an enjoyable way to visit our Nation's History.

This is a wonderful area to walk around and see all the memorials and history. I did this walk with my father when I was a youngster; however, the views did not get old the second time around, even in the 95 degree heat.

After this visit, we drove to Shenandoah National Park located approximately 1 1/2 hours away! Although drastically different, both are well worth your time.

Awesome views & scenery; photo ops as well!

Walked this today. Great hike to beautiful and moving memorial. My favorite were the memorials around the basin.

While this is a hot and very humid hike in the summer, it is an awesome and rewarding walk touching on our nation's history. Well worth the time for anyone wanting to see what DC has to offer.

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

Every time I visit DC, I always find something new while walking around the National Mall.

My HQ for 30 years was pretty close to the Washington Monument... Glad i'm retired!

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.

Heh... it said “moderately trafficked.” I’d say more “extra heavily trafficked!” Good trail considering that it has many Monuments that the US takes pride in. Good that it’s free. Except for tickets to the top of the monument. Those are HARD to get.

a lot to see...

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

Nice neighborhood walk with historic signposts. Nice area, safe, and surrounded by restaurants and bars. The last stop is by the Eastern Market, which is an open air Market with crafts, fruit and vegetables, and food trucks on weekends, and has a permanent indoor market all week long.

It's always a pleasure to walk the mall

The National Mall is always an inspiring destination with all its beautiful monuments and visitors from all over the world. It's a deceptively long walk (unless it's summertime with its infamous D.C. heat) as you often don't realize that you've walked miles just going from sight to sight. Fantastic way to share in America's history and also get some exercise!

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.

Always a great stroll especially during the Cherry Blossom Festival.

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.

Good for running, but views aren't anything special (there are better trails in the park) and crowded.

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