This trail as posted is not wheelchair or stroller friendly. The first 1.1 is thru the woods on hardpack and rooty and rocky. Since the 4.2 listed is an out and back, the last 1.1 is the same trail. Therefore a full half of this route is not wheelchair or stroller friendly. The second mile is on paved trail and goes past the entrance to the zoo. I opted to Go through the city on my way back instead of back tracking. Came across a nice farmers market on 17th st.

Went on a Monday morning during COVID season at 8:30. Highly recommend before that hot sun comes out and little shade! Super empty walking paths to enjoy the monuments.

Parts of this route are walking through the woods to connect to the next real trail, but it was easy enough to figure out.

Please give a full 5 days to take in all of the buildings and museums! This is a wonderful place to take the family and children! Many, many things to see and do!

Nice relaxing walk through nature. There are a couple adjoining paths on this trail. A lot of wildlife to be observed from deer to wild turkeys.

Great walk through the Navy Yard area. I modified the trail a bit to catch some monuments I wanted to see. Really enjoyed the sign markers with history of the area.

on bicycle, or foot, is the best way to enjoy the DC area and monuments.

It’s one of those things you have to do at some point - and I recommend doing it either early or late to avoid as many tourists as possible. Keep in mind, if you’re visiting in summer, it is HOT and HUMID and there’s not a ton of shade when you’re out in the middle of the Mall. It’s also a much longer walk than it looks like it is on the map (at least, it can feel that way). If you want to do the whole walk in one go, the Smithsonian museums afford a break from the heat, opportunities to use the restroom, and places to grab a quick bite and drink (and, you know, culture and interesting exhibits but I’m focusing on the walk). The larger monuments like the Lincoln, Jefferson, and FDR also have small exhibit spaces, gift shops, and bathrooms but can sometimes be hard for tourists to find - generally look for alcoves and old copper doors. They’re usually unassuming off-season and are closed but as far as I know are open late (I see joggers stop for a quick bathroom break in them after dark frequently). Easily the highlights of this walk are the memorials around the Tidal Basin, which is a beautiful place to be - especially when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, of course! EDIT: Oh, I didn’t even realize the trail went all the way to the Capitol! Also has a visitors center if you need to use the restroom (and a cafeteria - no, not the cafeteria your representatives eat in, unfortunately, unless you’re a very special guest, heh). Not worth the lines and security unless you’re going to enjoy a tour - and see if you can get a House or Senate viewing gallery pass from your representative or senators (you get to pick it up directly from their office and might catch a glimpse of some people you see on the news in the elevator) and even if it’s a slow day (or a slooooooow day) it’s still civically interesting to see your legislature in action... or at least, what congress considers action, haha).

Did this with the family. It was busy, as is to be expected. It was cloudy and there was a cooling breeze. Got off course a couple of times to check things out and play the tourist.
