The MacArthur Boulevard Bike Path follows the winding road through the communities of Bethesda and Potomac, just north of Washington, DC. Along the way, the path passes shops in Cabin John and Glen Echo, and provides access to the popular Glen Echo Park.
Cyclists should be warned that the path is no more than a glorified shoulder at times, although the corridor is targeted for improvement in the near future. Connections to the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Park can be made at the trail’s northern endpoint at Old Angler’s Inn in Potomac; at Brickyard Road; at the bridge over Cabin John Creek and Cabin John Parkway just west of Wilson Lane; and at the northern end of the Brookmont development closer to the Maryland–District of Columbia border.
The trail also links to the Capital Crescent Trail via the Little Falls Trail at Sangamore Road.
Parking for the MacArthur Boulevard Bike Path can be found at Old Angler’s Inn, Cabin John Park and Glen Echo Park along MacArthur Boulevard.
