Bike to Mount Vernon with this self-guided two-way ride following the same route George Washington traversed on his travels between Old Town and his home. The scenic Mount Vernon trail takes riders through Dykes Marsh and Belle View Park.
The canopy coverage and banks of the Potomac provide seclusion and a beautiful transition back in time to an early America, making the ride a wonderful way to approach the timeless feel of the Mt. Vernon Estate.
Learn about the history and stories behind George Washington's home and the surrounding area! Costumed characters do the chores needed on this 1799 estate. Explore the 21 room mansion, slave quarters, stables,16 sided barn (designed by Washington), working farm with rare breed farm animals (similar to the ones that Washington kept), and gardens as they looked in 1799. Pick a spot on the grounds to enjoy the picnic lunch you brought with you.
When you are ready, bike back to Old Town Alexandria at your own pace.
