About the Book

Historic grounds, mountain terrain, beachside and waterfalls surround Washington DC. Because of the stunning scenery around the city, hiking in Washington DC is more than a trek around town. Travel writer Theresa Dowell Blackinton shows you the best hikes in and around Washington DC. All hikes within the guide take less than 2 hours to reach by car, with details on public transportation options and clear directions on how to reach the trailhead. Theresa has compiled lists of her favorite hikes, including Best Historical Hikes, Best Kid-Friendly Hikes, and Best for Viewing Wildlife.

Let Theresa show you all the worthwhile hikes, from short, flat routes suitable for families to day-long, steep treks for more advanced hikes. Each hike profile contains practical information including point-by-point trail navigation, contact information, facilities, fees, parking instructions, and an easy-to-use map for each trail. From metropolitan DC to Shenandoah National Park and on to Chesapeake Bay, your trip begins with Moon Take a Hike Washington DC.
