Matthew Henson Trail

very relaxing and pretty trail

April, 2021 by mpalmiter

I have biked the Matthew Henson Trail many times and it is very relaxing as it follows the water or has raised bridges in a very wooded area. Parts of it are inside a residential neighborhood but you would not know it. There is a lot of pedestrian traffic so be careful if you are on a bike

Carl Henn Millennium Trail

A fun loop around Rockville

April, 2021 by mpalmiter

I have done the Carl Henn loop many times and it can be fun if you are fine with making traffic light crossings and taking your time. The Gude drive portion is industrial and gravelly and not so pleasant but the rest of it is really pretty

Downs Park Trail

Well Worth It!

April, 2021 by 4qb8zx749k

This trail was simply beautiful. All paved and nestled through amazing forest and along the water. So worth the hour drive from my home and the $6.00 entrance fee.

Downs Park Trail

Well Worth It

April, 2021 by 4qb8zx749k

This trail was very beautiful. Nicely paved and winds through woods with breathtaking scenery along the way. Was about an hour drive from my home and entrance was $6 per car, but I will absolutely go back.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

A great experience for an afternoon or for a whole weekend!

April, 2021 by cyschill98

My wife and I enjoy this well-maintained trail almost every weekend when the weather is nice. We like to drop onto the trail at different points along its 180+ mile length for variety—it’s absolutely beautiful with nature around every turn, mixed with lots of history. We recommend heading down to the Potomac River on one of the many paths to enjoy the scenery when you need a break.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

east of Brunswick on C n O

April, 2021 by soucy.henri

Rode the trail from Harpers Ferry to Locke 8 on Tuesday, April 13th. Be aware that just east of Brunswick is a detour that crosses an ancillary canal that proved to be impassable and resulted in a 10-mile plus to detour, over road with little shoulder and hilly. Another cyclist said the area was passable as recently as the Sunday prior (4/11).

St. Michaels Nature Trail

short and sweet

April, 2021 by larogan

Easy parking at small clean park, then hop on paved flat trail. A couple of nice water views and a covered bridge. Crosses several neighborhood streets with minimal car activity. Very nice.

Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

Great Trail!!!

April, 2021 by larogan

Beautiful, paved, flat ride along the canal with ample resting spots. Parking and getting to the trail was a little awkward and dangerous sharing a narrow busy road with vehicles for about 1/4 mile. Be careful with little ones.

Marshyhope Hike and Bike Trail

Nice for a stroll

April, 2021 by kabolster

Asphalt uneven by church parking lot, but otherwise well-maintained. Saw 2 blue heron, killdeer, and sparrows. Some activity by boat ramp, otherwise we were the only people on the path. WCs by Marina Park and at boat ramp. Drizzly day when we walked, but we will come back again.

Great Allegheny Passage

Beautifully Maintained

March, 2021 by mjr9201

I rode the GAP late last Fall from Cumberland to Pittsburgh and enjoyed it immensely. Did Cumberland to Connellsville Day 1 and that was a little bit too long a day for me but the weather was great and I met up with some very cool people traveling in my direction. I did Connellsville to Pittsburgh relatively quickly on Day 2, arriving at Point State Park by midday. Lovely ride. Well maintained rail trail. Nice amenities all along the way. Beautiful scenery. Got lost a bit in McKeesport but found my way back relatively easily. Highly recommended. Now to go from Pittsburgh to DC!

Great American Rail-Trail

best trail ever

March, 2021 by tpassarelli_tl

Capital Crescent Trail

Capital Crescent Trail

March, 2021 by erinoh

This trail If you start in Silver Spring is a total of 11 miles one way. We started our bike ride in Bethesda. The trailhead in Bethesda is right outside the Capital Crescent Garage (31). It is free on weekends and holidays. There is a separate elevator for folks with bikes. We parked on level G2 right by the elevators, easy to get in and out of the elevator. Once you exit the garage, the trail will be right in front of you. From this point, it is 7 miles to get to the Georgetown Waterfront Park. This trail also runs parallel to the C & O canal towpath. There are breaks in the trail, so you can easily go back and forth between the two trails. A lot of people walking on the trail, so be careful if you’re bicycling. From the park if you go up Wisconsin Ave, you’ll find bike racks where you can lock up your bike. We knew we wanted to walk around Georgetown, so we brought locks with us. We took some time to window shop and eat. If you want a great cupcake, go to Sprinkles. Their cupcakes are delicious and better than Georgetown Cupcakes. The ride to Georgetown was downhill and easy. The ride back was harder because it was uphill. If you’re only doing the trail and you’re riding at a steady pace, it should take you 2 hours to complete. Round trip from Bethesda to Georgetown and back was ~15 miles. I wouldn’t recommend doing the trail from Silver Spring, there’s construction at the moment and they have a detour in place. Overall beautiful ride, great for adults and kids. Plenty to see and do!
