This beautiful out and back hike will celebrate the exquisite spring bluebells and wildflowers in Seneca Park along the Potomac River. I’m not hosting this hike as one of the “backpack training hikes” I’ve been doing as of late and plan on leaving plenty of time to enjoy the sound of the river, the early spring leaves and the delicate wildflowers carpeting the forest floor. You may want to bring a pair of binoculars.
The plan is to meet in the parking area at the end of Seneca Rd off of Georgetown Pike. Plug the following coordinates(39.051580, -77.334130) into the maps.google.com search area or a GPS to pin point our meeting location if needed. Remember to bring a snack, water and shoes appropriate for some possible spring muddiness.
LENGTH: About 6.5 miles
ELEVATION GAIN: About a 1/2 mile hike from the parking area down to the river then back up again at the end. Otherwise, mostly flat.
