There are several hikes like the Lincoln Trail and the CNO Canal. I can't
find my copies of the info right now. There are also passports that can be
purchased at any of the National Parks or Monuments. The Park Rangers stamp
them for free on the page in that part of the country with a circular rubber
stamp with the date. Stick-on stamps can also be purchased in the gift
shops. They have nothing to do with Scouts, but make nice souvenirs and can
be related to a badge.
Check out the Nation's Capital Council for info. It is on Wisconsin Ave
just off 495 (the beltway) north of DC near Bethesda Naval Hospital.
