Caution: there is at least one other exit from this Metro station! We will begin at 1st Street SE at the Anacostia River Trail. That joins the West Bank Trail to Kingman Island. We exit Kingman Island on Benning Road, where we will board the DC Streetcar (free) to Union Station for lunch. Restrooms possibly at CVS or Starbucks before hike and at Union Station afterwards. Hike is canceled if DC Public Schools are closed or open late due to inclement weather.
