Take a Walk Through History on the Brightwood Heritage Trail

Before the cold rush of winter strikes DC, take a walk through history on Brightwood's community heritage trail.

The trail begins at 5427 14th Street, which can be reached by taking Metrobus 70 or 71, and takes walkers throughout Brightwood, ending at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Peabody Street.

The trail is designed to take approximately 90 minutes to complete, but walkers can move at whatever pace they choose.

The walk is packed with the culture and history that makes Brightwood one of D.C.'s most distinct communities.
