Date: Sunday, October 30th, 2022, 8:30am
Location: Peirce Mill, 2401 Tilden St NW, Washington, DC
Hike up to three largely flat miles on paved and dirt trails through Rock Creek Park's peak (we hope!) fiery orange, red, and yellow fall foliage. We'll start at Pierce Mill (an Instagram-worthy hotspot with a history of spies), and trek along Beach Drive to scenic Boulder and Rapids bridges, where we'll pause for a snack and selfies.
