Shepherd Parkway Civil War Site 

Civil War Fort Sites in Washington DC- over 100 walks led in this longstanding series.

We will return to part of the Civil War Fort Connector in the vicinity of Fort Carroll referred to as SHEPHERD PARKWAY. Here we will see the ground carpeted with Toothwort and many unusual trees and ground plants. This area is just south of the west campus of St. Elizabeth’s Historic Site.

Leader:  Mary Pat Rowan and Lou Aronica

Notes: Easy to moderate walk.

Bring: Water and lunch.

Directions: Access from Washington or Maryland: From the north take I-295 south past Suitland Parkway to exit # 2-Bolling Air force Base/Malcolm X (formerly Portland Street). (Better plan may be to google Malcolm X and Newcomb SE) Drive up hill going east and park on Malcolm X near Newcomb Street. From the south, take I-295 from the Beltway, proceed past South capitol Street to Malcolm X, exit on right and proceed as above.

Cancellation Policy: A light drizzle is fine but the trip will be cancelled if pouring rain. Call Mary Pat before 9 am on Sunday if you have concerns about whether the trip is cancelled due to weather.
