Mount Vernon Trail

Worth the Ride

October, 2020 by tanyalittlejohn

I struck out to embrace the self-challenge of riding the Mt. Vernon Trail. With the expectations of being challenging, while beautiful, I was not disappointed. As I began to ride from Gravelly Point to Mt. Vernon, I encountered riders and walkers of various ages, so much of the trail is easy to moderate. With a few hills and declines, it offers a great environment to take in scenic views of the Potomac River and get the heart rate up. There are a few places along the route to stop and rest, get a drink of water or sit at a picnic table. As I ventured closer to Mt. Vernon, the ascensions became more steep, so I had to encourage myself to push through.

Mount Vernon Trail

Historical and beautiful but can be bouncy

October, 2020 by ringogarcia1972

Super nice trail with lots of history in the nation’s capital. The trail connects the two original British colonial ports in the area - Georgetown and Alexandria - and then on up to GW’s estate. Glides along the Potomac with lots of twists and turns. Gravelly Point is good if you like airplane watching. One thing to be careful about is the series of bumps on the trail near the bridges caused by the roots from the trees next to the path.

Kent Island South Trail

Quiet ride

October, 2020 by lshock55

Enjoyed the ride. Nicely paved path. Not many people on trail. Would recommend this to anyone.

Indian Head Rail Trail

Great ride on a beautiful trail.

Cross Island Trail

Nice ride on a newly paved trail

October, 2020 by tlockman11

Nice mix of wooded and open trail, good views of the waterfront. Will do this ride again.

Kent Island South Trail

South Trail a nice short ride

October, 2020 by tlockman11

We enjoyed the trail on a beautiful October afternoon. Trail traffic was very light and the trail's new pavement made the ride very nice. It's about 12 miles round trip and the pier at Romancoke is a nice stop. Just wish the trail was a few miles longer or connected to the Cross Island Trail.

Oxon Run Trail

Hidden gem

October, 2020 by cjeanine82

Just discovered this trail today. Beautiful scenery and wide open asphalt trail. I walked it for an hour and only saw 2 people, so there’s no heavy foot traffic. Parking at Oxon Hill Farm is plentiful. Beware near the start of the trail there is a pretty significant downhill grade, which was nice to walk. But the trail is not a loop, so you have to walk back up. If you’re out of shape like me or new to walking/running for fitness, it’s a bit of a beast to walk back up.

Maintenance Update

September, 2020 by imjokelly

9/27/20. Was just on this trail. Yes, there is a bit of maintenances work underway, but now there is a clearly marked detour. The detour is on the adjacent road, but it is short (less than 300 yards), clearly marked, and on a wide shoulder.

Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail

Challenging Ride.

September, 2020 by gdaigon

A challenging ride with lots of rocks, pebbles, and root branches on the trail. Got a great workout going the whole 31 miles. Shotgun blasts by nearby hunters can be disconcerting. I think this trail is more for a mountain bike.

Marshyhope Hike and Bike Trail

Bridges over Dorchester County

September, 2020 by benbowne

Scenic ride by and over water. Three playgrounds along the way. Good spots to stop and fish and/or picnic.
