The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. Based on guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to the park is as follows:


  • The Jockey Hollow Visitor Center, and portions of the Washington's Headquarters Museum and Ford Mansion. All park grounds and parking lots are open 8am - 8pm. Some areas may be temporarily closed due snow and ice throughout the winter. Alerts will be posted when this happens.
  • All portions of the Jockey Hollow Tour Road
  • Soldier Huts
  • All 27 miles of hiking trails
  • Equestrian trail use (5 trailer spaces at the visitor center parking lot only)
  • All restroom facilities, with limited capacities...


  • The Wick House

NOTE: Fort Nonsense is closed due to major road repair. The project is expected to last through mid-September. Check the park Facebook page and this web site for updates.

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
