Three Notch Trail

Beautiful Country Views…

June, 2024 by allen.tinasia

I haven’t seen any recent reviews regarding this location so I wanted to write an update. I am an inline skater & enjoy new trails to try. It’s a beautiful location for the most part. Very quiet & a nice long trail with minimum elevation. It is surrounded by an Omish community, & farmlands throughout the entire route. Although it was beautiful views of the land & farms, it also had downsides. The roads were not very smooth, but still nice enough to skate on. There was animal poop all on the trail you have to avoid if you care about your wheels. It also smells like farmland. Do with that as you wish. Happy Riding!

Indian Head Rail Trail

Amazing trail !

I haven’t anything new so I thought I would add one. I love this route! I am an inline skater and it is a very smooth ride. It is not super crowded & very peaceful. The people are really nice & I never have any issues.

love the trail!

Very nice trail. I just discovered the western spur the other day and it’s very nice. Was curious that it’s not on the trail map though.

Anacostia River Trail

Great Trail

June, 2024 by carrollball99

Rode this on 6/13/24 with a friend, covering 20 miles. Parked at the Ropewalk Pavilion, 4601 Annapolis Rd, Bladensburg. Restroom here was clean. Trail is well marked with trail signs except for about 1/2 mile were you are traveling through a neighborhood on the streets. Lots of turns and small hills make it pleasant to ride allowing you to rest some while coasting. Most if the paved trail is only about 6 feet wide so you need to stay on your own side especially at the blind turns. Condition of the asphalt was good although some of the boardwalks were a little rough. This trail takes you past some beautiful scenery in MD and DC. There was a 400 yard section by the Wash Navy Yard where you are supposed to walk your bike.

B&A Trail

the gold standard for anne arundel county trails

June, 2024 by josephpinkish

Long, mostly straight, subtle gentle hills, nice views, and a reasonably low amount of road crossings. My personal go-to for long runs.

Patuxent Branch Trail

Trail in disrepair about 1 mile from trailhead basically unpassable looks like it's been that way for a while :(

Mount Vernon Trail

Root Cracks Ground Down

June, 2024 by evada

With the exception of the mile just north of Mt Vernon, all the root cracks have been ground down to nearly smooth. Would probably be acceptable on a road bike, but more comfortable on hybrid or gravel bike.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

We parked at lock 38 by Shepardstown. Trail is well maintained and gorgeous. Many bikers, runners and walkers out.Note it is a trash free park.

Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park (W&OD)

Another top 10 bucket list ride nationwide !!

May, 2024 by d_morris

From Dupont Circle in DC out to Purcellville in VA is almost exactly 50 miles. So hard core cyclists can do a century, while less extreme pedalers can make a two day trip out of it. And, as there are many Metro stops along the trail, cyclists can also do rides of varying lengths along different sections. An amazingly versatile trail in that regard. All of which — plus the C&O Canal (360 miles r/t from DC to Cumberland), Mt Vernon Trail (42 miles rt from DC to Mt Vernon), Rock Creek Park trail (45 miles rt from DC to Lake Needwood) should make DC the top cycling destination in the US.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Awesome Nature Rides

May, 2024 by d_morris

Whether a multi-day ride from DC 180 miles to Cumberland or individual day rides along the tow path next to the C&O canal, this trail is awesome. And now that much of it has been resurfaced to be crushed granite rather than just dirt, muddy rides will no longer be a problem after and during rains. One of the top 10 bucket list rides in the US, easily.

Metropolitan Branch Trail

Great Easy Access City Trail

May, 2024 by astrathman31

Very easy to find the trail from any of the nearby red line stops which allows for easy segmenting if you don’t want to do the entire trail. Very runner friendly the entire way. It’s a great resource to have in the middle of the city.

Powerline Trail (MD)

Maryland "Rolling" Hills

May, 2024 by hughes29187

Good mountain bike trail that as described in the trail overview traverses up and down the "rolling" hills with many areas of no shade. If you start up at the Germantown Soccerplex, I suggest you park near the BMX bike course and south along the tree line and you come across the starting marker for the Powerline trail (about a tenth of a mile down).
