Get off at the Tenleytown/AU stop on the Red line. Head out of the subway and go North up 40th/Fort.(They run parallel) Go past a "Whole Foods" to Chesapeake. Take a right(East)and look for the gravel road on your left. It runs past a small stage up the hill. You can see the stage on Google Earth. It's obvious where the highpoint is. Walk up to the top and you're there. It takes about 10 minutes round trip.
I hoofed this grassy slope in my Birkenstocks with husband, 2 kids, and a hundred other kindred spirits to bless this humble spot. Lots of laughter. Sunny & Warm. Guest Speakers.... Historians... Photographers.... Very exciting.... woohooo!!!! Let's here it for DC!!!!!! :-)))
Sketchy characters were lingering in the schoolyard nearby, so I made a brief visit. There was actually an outfitter shop only a couple of blocks away. A great place to gear up for your climb!
