    Hey everyone! If you are a Mount Vernon Trail user, this will be a good BPAC meeting to attend. I’ll be discussing some things that the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail are doing in the next year as well as some things in progress with the National Park Service.

    I generally use only the segment in Arlington between Rosslyn and Memorial Bridge- a pleasant run, but tree roots have heaved up the asphalt in some numerous places and the bed has settled to into boggy area in others. It is in poor shape.
