Most of the Washington Monument’s hiking trail is part of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Visitors are welcome to hike the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia or for just a few miles. Those planning an overnight backpack outing can park at Washington Monument State Park for a few days. The Appalachian Trail is a footpath only. Mountain bikers can use the trails at Greenbrier State Park.
Overnight parking for the Appalachian Trail is permitted in the lower parking lot near the youth group camping area. Please register your car in the hikers' log near the bulletin board. Please take any valuables with you.
