Eine Radtour (oder Jogging-Runde) auf dem Mount Vernon Trail entlang des Potomac Rivers kann ich jedem Reisenden in DC nur wärmsten empfehlen! Es ist ein toller Ausgleich zur klassischen "Sightsseing-Memorials-Runde". Mit den "Capital Bikeshare"- Rädern ist der Mount Vernon Trail super abzufahren. Ich bin bspw. von der Theodore Roosevelt Island bis nach Alexandria geradelt und hatte einen wundervollen Tag und konnte DC mal auf einer anderen Art und Weise auf mich wirken lassen. Zudem sieht man auch viele Sehenswürdigkeiten entlang des Flusses. Ein weiteres Highlight ist zudem der Airport Park, von welchem aus man Flugzeuge beobachten kann, die auf dem Ronald Reagan Airport landen.

How many people know the Mount Vernon Trail really exists? It is a 17-mile-long path that stretches along the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Northern Virginia between Rosslyn and George Washington's home at Mount Vernon. As part of U.S. Bike Route 1, the Potomac Heritage Trail and the East Coast Greenway, it opened in 1972 as a gravel path and was subsequently expanded and paved. Today, it is a popular trail for walkers, runners and cyclists that affords panoramic views of the Potomac River and the skyline and historic monuments of Washington DC, access via several bridges across the river to the National Mall and connections to other area hiker/biker routes. We became aware of the trail via a tour guide at Mount Vernon. It connects the easternmost portions of Arlington County, the city of Alexandria and Fairfax County and parallels the George Washington Memorial Parkway and the western bank of the Potomac River. Most of the northern half of the trail is open with sweeping views of the river and Washington DC while the southern eight miles below Alexandria is largely wooded with limited river views until you reach Mount Vernon. It also takes visitors along the west side of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Gravelly Point, where there are views of arriving and departing airplanes. Among other trails that connect with the Mount Vernon Trail are the East Coast Greenway, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal towpath and the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail.

Oh this trail isn’t fun for anyone. Walkers and Cyclists alike abhor this trail. It’s too narrow, so sharing is a problem. Tripping over the roots and falling into sunken holes is an actual hazard on this trail. If you’re a cyclist, prepare to rattle your teeth out and lose grip on our bars.

As an avid runner, this is one of my most favourite trails in the US. I've traveled from NYC to San Francisco and run many rail trails in between, but the Mount Vernon Trail holds a special piece of my heart. It's beauty and ease of use can't be beat. It's a popular trail, so there are usually other runners on it, but not so many that it feels crowded; just enough to make this solo female runner feel safe. It has a varied terrain which is nice, but if you start up at Mount Vernon the trail is mostly downhill, which makes for a fun out and back run. Alternatively, you can start at Mount Vernon and run to King Street which would be great for a long run (it's about 9ish miles). Overall, it's a great trail and perfect for any type of runner or walker and the view along to Potomac is incredible.

This is a great trail to walk on. There are miles of paved paths there. It is also connected to Theodore Roosevelt Island and several bridges across the Potomac River to the National Mall.

My wife and I parked along the George Washington Memorial Parkway and took a long walk on the trail. A beautiful setting.

A good place to walk or jog/run and enjoy the weather and beautiful nature scenery. It seems safe to visit this area either solo or with company, but I prefer company. It is not crowded and you can bring your dogs (on a leash) so they can enjoy the walk as well. It is not crowded, and you can bring a picnic if you desire (something light so you are not over-burdened). scenery and a little history. If you live in the DC and suburb areas, it is a good place to take out of town visitors as a contrast to the the DC hstoric areas.

Really fun trail to jog or walk, and lots of options on where to head. The only down side is this is a very busy biking trail so be prepared to have many many high speed passes by you. I was never hit by any of them, but some like to come a few millimeters from you.
