Geocache Description:

Please read the description carefully. Late-night access is not recommended.

From the cache location, you'll have a breathtaking view of REAL Washingtonians going about their business as busy commuters.

Getting to GZ

This cache is NOT located at street level - it is up on the Metropolitan Branch Trail, a fantastic bike thoroughfare.  Two ways to get here:

  1. Enter the trail from M Street, and on your way grab GC7NWWW!
  2. There are stairs up from 2nd St. (near where it curves around and becomes N St.) I believe there are signs.  

There's some street parking in the area, but depending on the time of day it might be very busy.

Please be careful of muggles, and be aware of bicycles coming down the trail!
