Let’s Meetup and walk at the US Arboretum!
July 24 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am EDT
Let’s join Sarah and Tonto for this fun meetup. Meet at the Asian Collection Parking at 8:30 a.m. and plan to go on about a 1.5hr walk.
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 10:00ish a.m. (Gates to the river open at 8:30). Plan on getting there a little early so we can be ready to go promptly at 8:30. If you’re running late you can meet us by the river.
Location: Asian Collection Parking area (this is a small lot by the Asian Collection and Dogwoods, not the main parking area).
This walk with be mainly on-leash with a potential for a short, optional off leash part at the beginning.
We will head down to the river first. If no one else is around, those who are comfortable can let their dogs run around off-leash in a big field for 10-15min. From there we will be totally on-leash and do a big loop around the arboretum. We will head from the river back up through the Asian collection and check out the camellias. From there we will go to the old Capitol Columns where we will take a longer break and take some pictures. After the break we can walk back to the parking area, or for those who’d like to stay longer there are many other areas to explore! There are also many quiet places where you can put out a blanket and enjoy a picnic lunch. This will be a mix of walking on pavement and on dirt/grass.
