dogs on leash
So much to see and do...from Dumbarton Oaks to Washington Harbour, Georgetown University to Rock Creek Park, Key Bridge, views by the Potomac, the C & O Canal, M Street, Wisconsin Avenue and all points in between. While living in the area, we spent many beautiful weekend days/evenings walking, exploring and returning to our favorite spots!
A big part of this trail is under construction/reclamation as of Sept 3. Once you cross Reservoir Rd and head toward the Potomac, it has a poorly marked detour to 44th street. It effectively ends so don't be surprised when your planned outing gets cut short. No details provided when this will be back to normal.
A bit industrial for a trail - you're walking along/on a large cement pipe a lot of the way. Still, very well shaded and a nice easy way into the trees in the city.
The wife and I biked 15 miles North from Great Falls, which made the whole ride 30 miles. Pretty flat trail which didn't provide any time to coast. This intensified the workout because we were initially only going to ride 10 miles North, but because it was so flat we pushed it an additional 5 miles. The scenery was nice; trees, river, creek. Your typical hiking environment. But, I would prefer more visual stimulation. We'll try the section starting from Cumberland next time.
