George Washington Birthplace Nature Trail is an easy kid friendly historical hike that allows hikers to follow in the footprints of our nation's first president. This trail is a short drive from the greater Washington D.C. area and Richmond. The trail is dog friendly but your pup must on leash. Look out for Bald Eagles and Osprey, which are frequently observed along the trail.
