Barcroft Walkabout

The Washington Post described Barcroft as “a photo album snapshot of an idyllic neighborhood from earlier times.” Dating back to the late 1800s, this community grew up around the Barcroft Mill and train station. Today it’s one of the friendliest neighborhoods around, with local residents playing an active role in preserving neighborhood camaraderie. The Walkabout allows exploration of parts of the Four Mile Run Trail.

  • Length: 1.6 miles
  • Terrain: Mostly easy, one steep downhill, one moderately difficult uphill
  • 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.
