    Default Say Thank You to NPS for Plowing This Year

    Folks that commuted over the 14th Street Bridge late last week may have noticed that the National Park Service cleared snow in LBJ Memorial Grove and the portion of the Mt. Vernon Trail that connects to the 14th Street Bridge. Several folks on the forum put in a lot of work advocating for NPS to do any type of snow clearing. I encourage everyone to provide positive feedback to NPS to help maintain (and hopefully expand) snow removal on the Mt. Vernon trail.

    Feedback can be provided through the following:

    I just wanted to thank the National Park Service for plowing snow in the LBJ Memorial Grove and the portions of the Mt. Vernon trail connecting LBJ to the 14th Street Bridge. As a daily bike commuter, I rely on this connection to get to and from work safely. Although I'd love to see the entire trail cleared after snow, clearing this portion of the trail was vital to me and several other bike commuters being able to get to work last week.

    I've never seen anything like what they did this year. It seemed to be MOST of the MVT - as well as the W&OD in Arlington & Alexandria! (But they aren't in charge of any of the W&OD, are they? That's Arlington & Alexandria I need to thank for those bits, right?)

    I went out on both frigid days last weekend (with friends, both times and figured I'd ride out on the Custis and turn around when the MVT got too snowy.... Imagine my surprise on frigid Saturday when we ended up riding the WHOLE LOOP!
