Ireland Drive Trail Description

Curving around the perimeter of the Army's Forest Glen Annex, the paved portion of the Ireland Trail is 1.5 miles and winds through the woods, making for a pleasant and scenic excursion into nature. The trail can be used to travel from the Linden Lane area of Silver Spring to the Rock Creek Trail. This is particularly useful since the Georgetown Branch Trail is temporarily closed due to Purple Line construction.


Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead off Rock Creek Trail is by Jones Mill Road (just north of Levelle Drive) and there is a small parking lot as well.

The trailhead off Ament Street is opposite the National Park Seminary and next door to the Forest Glen Army Annex. There is public parking for 4 cars behind the town homes on Ament St.


Ireland Drive Trail Reviews

Nice trail through the woods

The Ireland Drive Trail offers a nice quiet trail through the woods that can also be used for access from Rock Creek Trail (near Le Velle Drive) to Forest Glen and Silver Spring. The Ament Drive entrance is right by the National Park Seminary and the National Museum of Health and Medicine. The entrance off of the Rock Creek Trail is close to Woodend Nature Sanctuary.
