This park combines walking and biking trails with open spaces, picnic areas, and some great history. On a clear Autumn afternoon, this place is beautiful full of brilliant maple trees and views of the Potomac. I love exploring the old gun batteries that protected Washington...More

This is a treasure in the Mount Vernon area as most people do not know it exists or understand the vast trail system that it has. The park is rarely crowded.

Fort Hunt Park is a nice open green space suitable for jogging, picnicking or strolling. The Park itself is tugged in wooded and residential area. Unless you plan for a group picnic, there is no significant historic site in the park (except for a small...More

I have not seen the entire park. Like going here to take walks because there are many people and a lot of activities. Not so many that you can't pass each other on the sidewalks. They do have restroom facilities in the walking trail areas.
