Washington to welcome inaugural winter hike

December 25, 2020 by  

The first ever Washington Ward 8 Winter Woods Hike is set to hit the trail next month, and its organizers are hoping it will become a well-loved community tradition.

Nathan Harrington, who is the Director of Ward 8 Woods, will be guiding a hike that will follow the George Washington Carver Nature Trail, guiding a group of residents through some of the area’s most pristine woodlands. Tickets are $10, and to help make sure everyone will be able to socially distance during the activity, only 10 spaces are available.

Along with hiking the nature trail, the group will also walk part of the proposed Suitland Parkway Northside Trail, which is a project the Ward 8 Woods is hoping to undertake in the future. It was noted that the participants will be going through some sections that have not yet been cleared, so waterproof boots and heavy pants are highly recommended.

The route the hikes will follow is approximately 1.5 miles in length, and it will depart from 1901 Fort Place Southeast. A brochure printing company can prepare pamphlets that offer more information about the organization hosting an event like this.

This inaugural Ward 8 Woods Winter Hike will head out at 12:00 pm on Saturday, January 23. Additional information and registration details can be found on its online listing.
