Over the past month, we have been busy mapping all 18 miles of the Mount Vernon Trail for Google Street View. Previously only small portions of the trail were available online. We hope that having the entire trail on Google Street View it will inspire people to go outside and check out the trail in real life. Additionally, people worldwide can now experience the beauty of the Mount Vernon Trail from their computers. We will continue to update Google Street View throughout the year so trail users can see the trail change across seasons. Mapping the Mount Vernon Trail is only possible via the support of donors who helped purchase a GoPro Max camera. We use this camera to document the trail and volunteer events.
Highlights of our Google Street View footage include:
Beautiful panoramas of the Potomac River

The Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail needs your help to continue improving the trail. Sign up for a volunteer trail improvement event or Donate to Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail to help us purchase tools and supplies.
