Ashton Heights Walkabout

Situated in the geographic heart of Arlington County, this residential community dates back to the early 1900s. Ashton Heights grew up around the Clarendon electric trolley station and is noted for its eclectic architecture and strong conservation sensibility. This Walkabout begins and ends at the ever-fascinating Arlington Arts Center, a great addition to your tour, and passes by the home of longtime County Board member and avid walker, Jay Fisette.

  • Length: 1.75 miles
  • Terrain: Relatively flat and easy, through a quiet residential neighborhood
  • Car-Free Access
    To get to the start of each Walkabout route, there are plenty of car-free options.  Visit CarFreeNearMe to determine which of those options, from Capital Bikeshare to ART to Metro, is best for you.
