Four-Mile Run hooks up directly with the Mount Vernon Trail at National Airport. Mt. Vernon Trail runs along the Potomac River from Mount Vernon (George Washington's House) south of Alexandria up past Rosslyn. Along the way it connects to several bridges--14th Street Bridge, Memorial Bridge, and Key Bridge--that cross the Potomac to DC. A bit north of Rosslyn, the Mt. Vernon trail connects to the Martha Custis trail, which goes west along 66, but I don't know how far. From the Key Bridge, Memorial Bridge and 14th Street Bridge, you can catch the C&O Canal Trail, Capital Cresent Trail, Rock Creek Trail, Sligo Creek Trail and Northwest Branch Trail all the way in Prince Georges County, Maryland.
In any case, you can easily get to DC and all the other trails if you are near the Four-Mile Run trail. That map shows them all.
See you on the trail!
