Walk Along the Potomac — Exploring the Spirituality of Water
- C&O Canal National Historical Park 10801 Macarthur Blvd NW Potomac, MD, 20854 United States (map)
There’s something about water. Something that calms us, comforts us, challenges us, deepens us. Water can be both powerful and gentle. Life-giving and life-destroying. Clarifying and puzzling. Water is so significant spiritually that it is the source of important rituals and traditions in almost every major religion.
Join Potomac Conservancy, the Center for Spirituality in Nature, and Interfaith Power and Light DC.MD.NoVA as we walk along the Potomac River and explore the spiritual importance of water — and how it affects not just us, but all the creatures and plants that share the Potomac River Basin with us. We’ll have some conversation, share some reflections, pause for some quiet time, get some exercise, and have some fun.
The walk will take place along the Billy Goat Trail B (that’s the more moderate one!) through floodplain forest and along the river for about 2.5 miles. Tickets for the walk are $18.
