Rachel Cooper is the co-author of the excellent new book, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of Washington DC including suburbs. 3rd edition.

We’re going to kick this off with a new series of local hikes by celebrating the centennial of Anacostia Park and the rich history of the riverfront community in Southeast Washington that borders it. Land along the 8.7-mile Anacostia River was preserved for a park by an act of Congress in August 1918, and today is a vibrant urban retreat that extends from Maryland’s Prince George’s County to Washington, D.C., and is filled with diverse natural features. This tour, October 8, is sold out, but if you want to be on the waiting list, please check out our web site for more information.
