Ascent Trip Report

I used this address:

4011 West Braddock Road
Alexandria, Virginia 22304

I parked in the parking lot for Fort Ward Museum & Historic Site. I walked across the road and there is a 10 foot tall black fence. I made my way over the fence and found the jogging trail about 100 feet inside the woods. There was a good 6" of snow on the ground with ice rain coming down. I made my way to the highest point which is not easy to find. I recommend taking a GPS. I walked around for 20 minutes getting all the points that looked the highest before returning to my car.
