Trailhead is located near intersection of Turkey Foot Road and Query Mill Road in North Potomac, MD. From Washington, DC, take I-270 North. Get on MD Rte 28 North (Exits for Rte 28 N, Shady Grove Road, or Rte 124 W will do it). Proceed north past intersection with Rte 124. Turn left on Jones Lane. At an intersection proceed straight onto Turkey Foot Road. After about 1/4 mile you will see Query Mill Road on the right. Park on the grass just past Query Mill Rd. Cross Query Mill to the trailhead marked by a pink flag (see picture).

Great trail. Easy to follow. Lots of nice views. Never too far away from civilization (if you have an issue).

The river is absolutely beautiful to look at while hiking this trail. It is possible to also find deer and other wildlife while hiking. I had come across several deer while my group was hiking this trail. Crossing the streams can be troublesome, but the water is not deep. You may get your feet wet. It is also frequented by runners and bikers so pay attention.

Great trail to see pileated woodpeckers and eastern blue birds. Trail connects North Potomac at highway 28 with the Potomac River at Pennyfield lock on the C&O tow path. Mostly green space, with no major road crossings. Few hikers, bikers and horses all share this greatly enjoyable trail.

When I go into the woods I want to just see woods. I prefer not to see houses and backyard. Also there was an unfortunate amount t of trash on the trail.

I've done this trail from The horse center on Quince orchard road , all the way to the Potomac at Pennyfield lock. seems to be abut 10-15 miles total so far. It is a work in progress and new signs and blue blazes and trail head posts are springing up every couple of months. (this review is on 12-24-2015) It's pretty easy to follow, and you have to look around for the trail at each road crossing with the hardest to find being the Query mill/Esworthy road point, heading down stream. You actually have to hike up Esworthy road about 1/3 mile and the trail continues near a utility line. down a very steep hill, then back up a hill to the River road crossing. Which then deposits you at the blockhouse point series of trails. Great hike if you live in the area, as I do. it's only five minutes from my house.

This is a very nice trail. What is described here is less than half of the trail that stretches from Route 28 to River Road close to the Potomac River. There is parking at Route 28, Quince Orchard and River roads. Full description available at http://www.montgomeryparks.org/PPSD/ParkTrails/trails_MAPS/muddy-branch-greenway-trail.shtm

This trail is pretty decent if you want to go hiking on a trail where there's not a lot of people. The path is pretty narrow so keep that in mind. Also there is not really good parking around the trailhead we just parked on the side of the road.

Just did this trail today, 11/10/2012. Very nice. Definitely moderate ... A few nice climbs. I didn't do the entire trail only went about 3.5 miles in, As for directions, I parked on the grass on the side of query mill, the trail begins a few feet before the bridge. I circled for a while on Turkey Foot before parking on query mill. Saw a few bikers, runners and fellow hikers. Lots of birds and critters to see.
