This submission is part of my personal project, the Atlantic States Seaboard Tour where I attempted an FKT route in each state, on back-to-back days. There are 14 contiguous states that follow the Atlantic Coast Shoreline: Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

A full trip report will be posted on within one week.

On 09/28 at 10:25 am I ran the Capital Crescent Trail, starting in Bethesda. There were so many walkers and bike riders on this trail. It was really cool to see the sites. Afterwards, I walked the 2 miles to our nation's landmarks. Wow! So breathtaking!
