Mount Vernon is a commercial and residential neighborhood located just east of Washington D.C.'s central business district. Area residents can walk to neighboring amenities and find plenty of commercial activity in their region. The Mount Vernon Triangle has restaurants, shops, and services located throughout it and historic buildings. The main street of the neighborhood is K Street,with the intersection nearby being a commercial hub and focal point of the area. This neighborhood is highly walkable with a plethora of on foot destinations. 


When walking with your dog in the region, you should avoid hot, humid conditions in summer which can overtax you and your pup on long hikes. You'll also want to avoid extreme cold temperatures in winter with wind chill and snow that can result in discomfort. Severe thunderstorms in summer months are also a factor and have hazards like high winds and torrential rain that should be avoided by pedestrians.

Mount Vernon is a triangularly shaped neighborhood with New York Avenue on the north side, Massachusetts Avenue on the southwest side, and New Jersey Avenue on the east side. Interstate 395 runs above ground on the north side of the region and then runs underground through a tunnel on the southern section of the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood. This freeway is not easily crossed where it runs above ground. 


Mount Triangle is a developed urban area with multi-story office and apartment buildings with not a lot of natural landscaping. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to climb when walking with your pup in the region. There are sidewalks on roads, so you and your pet don't have to share the road with traffic, which is good as this is a heavily trafficked, active, and busy urban environment. Use caution when crossing streets and use controlled pedestrian crossings at intersections.

Milian Park is a small triangular park across the road from Chinatown Park. These two parks have trees, open lawns, and paved walking paths to visit with your furry friend. There are also waste disposal facilities to get rid of any trash you may have accumulated on your neighborhood walk. 

Another small community park, Cobb Park, is located on the south side and has some landscaped areas. The National Mall, located a short distance to the south, has many interesting historic sites and monuments with manicured grounds and walking paths. Dogs on a leash are permitted on the walking paths in the mall and this is an interesting destination for you and your pet, although it can be busy with tourists during special events or at certain times of the year. 

Larger parks in the area include Rock Creek Park which provides hundreds of acres of natural greenway and miles of trails to enjoy long hikes with your hound.
