Rock Creek Park Bike Trail is a 5.2 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Washington, District of Columbia and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and road biking and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
More vertical and more bike and foot traffic than I would have liked.
Nice, but a lot of people. Even in the winter.
Solid dog walking trail, but pretty practical in terms of scenery. Would go to have a walk and talk
A beautiful place for walking, biking, or just relaxing.

Hard to beat all the dedicated biking trails in the area.
I loved the trail...walking and running..I would do it again.
Even though I selected road biking related to the paved portion of the main trail, this area is also great for mountain bikers as well as hikers. There are plenty of side dirt trails that wind their way through the wooded park. You will see plenty of wild life like deer and beaver, even though the trail runs through neighborhoods from DC to northern Montgomery county Maryland. That being said, a word of caution. As with any outdoor activity that involves traversing secluded areas, you should never go alone. Take a friend with you. Take your phone and carry something to defend yourself because it it better to be safe than sorry. There have been reports of lone runners and hikers being attacked and abducted on the trail so, stay alert.
It's great for biking! But it's a bit hilly, so many bikers choose to use the road along it instead, which makes driving on that road difficult sometimes.
