There is a terrific section of the Potomac Heritage trail that runs directly under the American Legion Bridge. It can be reached from marked steps on the left side of Live Oak Drive in Mclean where there is parking for 3-4 cars. To get there exit 495 at Georgetown Pike towards DC and turn left at the first light on Balls Hill Road. Take the first left on Live Oak Drive to recross the Beltway and continue to the very end of Live Oak where you can park in the cul de sac and will see the blue Potomac Heritage Trail sign on the right. Walk down the steep stepped trail and cross under the American Legion Bridge for a beautiful walk with many wild flowers in the spring. See the map I added as a photo for directions from 495
