Ballston, VA to Alexandria City, VA April 29, 2012; 8 miles.
This was a one way hike. Our car was in the garage after I had accidentally broken the door. It is an interesting story in itself. I will avoid digression. We did not have a car but we had to go to our old condo in Alexandria City. So we decided to make it exciting instead of taking the bus or renting a car. We headed west on the Custis trail, joined the Four mile run trail south until Walter Reed Dr., then headed south on Walter Reed which turns into N. Beauregard St and were at our old condo about 3 hours later. It was an evening hike and a pleasant one. We took the bus back home.
