The Henson Creek Trail runs downstream from Oxon Hill through wooded parkland. The creek flows into Broad Creek and then into the Potomac River, but the trail stops short. The tour follows suburban streets to the remains of Fort Foote, a battlement built to defend the city of Washington during the Civil War. Next stop is the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church at Brad Creek, where Washington worshiped. The tour ends at Fort Washington. Along the trail, enjoy the beautiful scenery and great views of the river. One section of the trail at Fort Foote is on a dirt path, which may be walked to explore the park. The terrain is moderately hilly.
