Hard packed dirt out and back past Georgetown for as many miles as you like. Our Start/Finish is within a mile of most recommended hotels & the White House.

* Start/Finish at the Towpath behind Four Seasons hotel at 29th & M (or pick it up at other access points along the route)

* Follow the path West as far as you want to go, there are markers for the first 20 miles

* Our 4-mile turnaround (one-way) is located at the parking lot past the Route 120 Bridge

* The path is not lit, so joggers should use the path during daylight hours only

Total = varied distances
