Running and biking on this short stretch of trail is always a fun time. Would not go out of my way to visit but it is a great transportation connection

Mount Vernon Trail

Brutal

September, 2022 by 2hf756rfxs

This trail is the worst trail I’ve ever ridden! Tree root exposed, pot holes, misdirected signage and not to mention an uphill climb for 5 miles 1800 feet elevation! My bike had to be taken to the shop for maintenance after riding due to the trail quality. I do not recommend this trail to anyone!!!

Great Scenery

September, 2022 by id10t

I took a long ride north from Glen Rock. Nicely shaded and some beautiful scenery along the way. On my next ride I want to stop at the winery. I highly recommend if you like a good smooth gravel ride and some history along the way.

Four Mile Run Trail

Good connector trail but has some detours right now

August, 2022 by bsnicholson63

Started at the DCA trailhead and continued west to Shirlington Blvd. There is construction in the Glebe Road area that sends you off the trail on to the streets of Arlington for a couple blocks. Overall, the detours are not a big deal but they do involve waiting at street crossing lights. Trail (including the detour) was well marked and maintained. Our main goal was to ride on the W & OD Trail, so we only used a portion of the Four Mile Run Trail.

Cross County Trail (VA)

Nice Trail - Beware a bridge

August, 2022 by paulnasto

I ride the paved part of the trail from Picket Road, Fairfax, past Americana Park and stop when the trail turns to crushed stone and gravel - where I turn back. It is a very nice ride and not too difficult. From Picket Road to the end of the paved trail is about 6 miles one way, fairly flat, nicely covered, and a pleasant ride through the woods with only a few street crossings.

As of 8/27/22, the wooden bridge 0.2 miles north of the Braddock Road underpass has a board that is rotting and most of it is missing. It is probably only 5 inches wide and easily navigated, but you need to cross it carefully.

Other than that one small spot, a good ride for all.........

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

Excellent trail

August, 2022 by karen.george1

Just returned from riding this trail 8.23.22. Fantastic. Very well maintained and scenic. History signage was good. Dont get confused about some of the breaks in the trail - keep going! You dont want to miss an inch of this trail. We ran in to a local named "Stu". Thank you Stu for your guidance to us "outta towners from Pittsburgh" as we would have stopped too early. Loved this trail and will be back soon!

Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail

Great work out

August, 2022 by karen.george1

Just returned from biking this trail. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We enjoyed the scenery and history and the trail is very well maintained. We started in New Freedom PA at the train station where there is a ton of parking. Being from Pittsburgh area we didn't know where the safest place was for parking - this location was perfect. Everyone so friendly!! Fantastic ride - great work out as the trail provides up/down portions. (We are age 62 and 59-cant do heavy work outs so this trail was great for us). We did this trail on 8.22.22 then we also did the connecting Northern Central Railroad trail on 8.24.22 and started from New Freedom both rides. BOTH trails are fantastic and we WILL go back.

Metropolitan Branch Trail

Lovin the Met Branch Trail so far!

August, 2022 by tyronecook

Love the artwork and the close proximity to many rest stops and places to eat & drink. I live in Alexandria, VA so I started on the Mount Vernon Trail, came into the city over the 14th Street bridge. Connected to the 15th Street cycle track to Pennsylvania Ave cycle track toward Union Station. Entered the MBT from Union Station. Looking forward to the continued work past Fort Totten. Felt so good to have all of this dedicated bike infrastructure. And it's only going to get better - so I'm saving that 5th star for the future :)
