Mount Vernon Trail is a 14.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Washington, DC that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Love this trail from Potomac yard to Buzz cafe in Alexandria. Can't get a better Saturday morning!
This trail is beautiful. But if your riding your bike you HAVE TO GO EARLY. or else its to many people on it.
Rode the trail, but started from home in Hyattsville, MD through DC and on the way to Jones Point Park. Nice trail, but can become very crowded, as others have stated.
Biked this - fairly level, a few dips and rises here and there, but nothing horribly challenging. Just crowded as all get-out, especially as the weekend morning passed about 9 am-- and just got worse from there...So I would say go on a weekday or early morning, or just deal with the crowds.
Lots of water available at either end and in the middle at one of the rest stops.
Really enjoy running on this trail!!
I had lots of fun running this trail. if you don't mind the bikes. great trail
Great trail. Very scenic. Good for beginners, due to the fact there are few hills, mostly flat. Can get crowed on weekends.
