Yorktown is a quiet enclave of single family homes bounded by high school and university campuses on the east and west and a busy commercial corridor to the south. The Yorktown Walkabout takes walkers from high school to pre-school to college and back again, stopping at hidden parks, historic landmarks, and busy shopping centers along the way. This Walkabout begins and ends at Greenbrier Park and has nine-stops, from schools and shops to historic homes and bucolic parks.
- Length: 2.3 miles with optional 0.9 mile extension
- Terrain: Slightly hilly, crisscrossed by residential streets, arterial roads, and parkland pathways.
- 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.
- PRINTABLE WALKABOUT ROUTE MAP IS AVAILABLE HERE: English or Spanish (PDF, Adobe Reader required)

Please consider noting the street address or other characteristic of the House. The cul-de-sac is full of infill development, and it is not clear which building is on the National Register.
