We’ve had five days to dig out of Jonas’s snowfall and results are about what we saw after snowfalls last year, with few surprises. Thank you to everyone who has chimed in with their observations! We’ve seen a lot of progress on Friday alone, so if you see more open on Saturday, let us know for the benefit of Sunday runners.
Green: Clear and closed to traffic
Yellow: Clear but open to traffic
Orange: Passable but not great
Red: Reportedly not cleared
Zoom in for more detail. Read on below the map.

You can get a decent workout in West Potomac Park using Ohio Drive and Buckeye Drive, and Hains Point in East Potomac Park was clear as of Friday at noon.
We’ve heard that the Mount Vernon Trail is bad away from Old Town Alexandria, and most of the W&OD is packed snow. Some high school track teams have been known to shovel lanes on the tracks, but if you’re heading out looking to run on one, be flexible with your timing because those lanes will be in high demand.
