Does anyone know if Hain's Point is still open for bikes? I was hoping to get out there Friday morning for a short ride, but seem to remember it being closed prior to the 4th of July in years past.
Any info would be appreciated!
It's CLOSED and you can't go around the gates into the grass, there is fencing up all around the gates.
Thanks for the info!
That extra fence was up last week, too, to seal off the whole gate in the morning. Does anyone know if this is a permanent thing or just related to the July 4th festivities? Not that you couldn't still get UNDER the gate before 7am, but a person starts to feel unwelcome...
Park Police only close HP off for the few days before 7/4 and maybe 1 day afterwards. Why is this such a tragedy? Don't you have trainers in your windowless basement? ;-)
You can also bike in Rock Creek or the Arboreteum.
I bet it comes down Sunday, or Monday at the latest.
For some reason I always thought The Point was where they stored the fireworks. Either read it somewhere or someone told me but I can't cite my source...either way, it's a fun story. (And it means we'll be back to super fun HP loops next week, yay!)
