There are two hiking trails at George Washington Birthplace National Monument: the Dancing Marsh Trail and the Nature Trail. They form a Figure-8, with the Dancing Marsh Trail being the lower loop. Each is less than a mile long and can be hiked individually or together to form one, large loop. Neither has any historical significance, though George Washington may have once walked over the same ground. Even though he moved away when he was only 3 1/2-years-old, his family owned the property until his father died in 1743, and George returned to the area many times.
