|Other People:||Solo Ascent|
Only Party on Mountain
|Date:||Tuesday, December 25, 2018|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-District of Columbia|
| Elevation:||415 ft / 126 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDriving Directions:
1. Take Beltway (495) to Connecticut Avenue South
2. Right on Nebraska Avenue
3. Right on Fort Drive NW, which is really just the entrance for Deal Junior High School. As long as the school is out, parking along Fort Drive is no problem.
4. Then just basically walk WSW up the small hill (with the Junior High at your back and angling away from Nebraska). The 2007 marker is huge by USGS standards and is a "can't miss" type of thing.
5. The marker is within 10 feet of the tree line. The tree line is in between the marker and the junior high school.
As others have noted, there is fenced off area nearby which was the original fort. Hike from parking to marker is less than 2 mins.
