Nauck Walkabout

Steeped in history, the pillars of this historically African-American neighborhood include the Mt. Zion Baptist Church, the Veterans’ Memorial YMCA, named in honor of a cadre of African-American troops in WWII, and the lunchtime favorite, Weenie Beanie. The hills and occasional narrow walkways in Nauck offer a challenge, but the reward is in its discoveries—like the seasonal displays of colorful annuals at the main gateway to the community.

  • Length: 2.1 miles
  • Terrain: Rolling terrain, with one steep “Superman Hill” on Walter Reed Dr.
  • 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.
