Glover-Archbold Trail

4100 Cathedral Ave NW
Washington, DC 20016

A three-mile trail runs the length of the park, which stretches from the Potomac River nearly to Tenley Circle. With seven stream crossings along the way, the defining feature of the route is Foundry Branch. For a 3.5 mile circuit hike, begin at Tenley Circle and hike south into Glover Archbold (at mile 2.3 above). Turn right at the trail to Battery Kemble (mile 4.1). Once in Battery Kemble, turn right and follow the trail to Nebraska Avenue, then follow Nebraska back to Tenley Circle.
