Dumbarton Oaks Park - A Little Trail Running Right In Georgetown

This last Sunday I was delighted to run through a new (for me) green space in Washington, DC: Dumbarton Oaks Park. In the past, I've run by the Dumbarton House, but I'd never explored the large park nearby.

Sure enough, it's a mini chunk of wilderness, right off city streets. The trail, especially around sunset, felt very much like the real deal. There were birds to listen to, interesting plants to poke around, and various features to explore. The space isn't huge, but neither is it an itty bitty park.

At the trail head, it mentions that Glover-Archbold Trail is a mile away. That means that I should be able to string together that run and this one to create a nice trail run right through DC proper.
