From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Greenway Commission:
The Popes Creek Railroad is a proposed rail trail in the southwest portion of the county that would run adjacent to Popes Creek from the Potomac River to U.S. 301. A stone or ash surface, suitable for both biking and hiking, is envisioned. The trail would be approximately three miles long.
