I have done some recon in the area. Looks to be a tricky penetration.

There are two potential roadways in. Old Portland road turns right and leads back to a juvenile detention facility (New Beginnings Youth Development Center) that serves youth from DC.
Unfortunately there is a guardhouse right at the turn (see red mark on attachment). Strongly worded agreement to search of all property.

You can also notice that the actual grounds (circled in green) can be accessed via the woodland job corps center. However, they have clearly marked No Tresspassing signs and a less imposing/unmanned guard house.

So...that leaves running through the woods from Old Portland road. Might be possible as a hike in from some distance away.

Surprised it took this long for someone to fly a drone around Pripyat:

Ran across this at io9:

A web series called Unusual Spaces goes under DC to explore the old trolley tunnels.

So that took me to their Vimeo page!

You're welcome.

Interesting stuff! I love the DC ones especially. I've actually wondered about those silos before.

Uh-oh...

DC's boundary stones...which answers a mystery of a caged stone that was right near my old apartment. And, now, I want to find them all!

We could spend 5 hours walking through people's backyards!

We can at least go look at the one in Silver Spring and then drink cucumber cocktails at the Daily Dish.

When do you want to explore the bridge near the house?
