    The hike will start and end at the Jefferson Memorial and will follow a roughly 3.3 mile loop which will take us past the Washington Monument, WWII Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial and MLK Memorial. We will meet on the side of the Jefferson Memorial facing the Tidal Basin. Attached is a map that shows the route.
