EWH3 #1412: Earth Day Trail, April 25, 2024, Van Ness-UDC (Red Line)

Calling all tree huggers and nature lovers! Do you love the smells of the outdoors? Do you love the feeling of the raw earth beneath your feet? Do you love rummaging through the bush (Like I did with your mom last night?)? Then get ready to embark on a wild journey through Rock Creek Park as we celebrate Mother Earth! 

As we venture deeper into the heart of this pristine forest, let the whispers of the wind and the chorus of the critters guide us along our way. But fear not, fellow drinkers, for our destination lies not just in the beauty of the trees and the babbling brook, but in a hidden gem (beer) that’s sure to quench both our thirst and our thirst for adventure!

This trail goes through hiking trails in the park, expect roots, rocks, and uneven ground! A cranium light is a must for runners!
