Andrew G. on Cabin John Trail
Ran the southern portion of the trail with my dog on a leash. Ran into lots of dogs off leash. Normally this does not bother me but when I asked two guys to control their dogs after I had to get in between their dogs trying to bite mine they started threatening me and luckily only harsh words ensued. I doubt I will ever run this beautiful trail again.
Erin P. on Cabin John Trail
Took off from the family park area and walked all the way down to the Potomac (might've been the C&O Canal I joined up with). Ended up being 19+ miles but it was a really pretty walk. Not terribly challenging but glad I brought fuel
This is one of my stomping ground rides. I grew up around this trail, but it has changed dramatically since MORE started maintaining it.
I love this ride! It's got a little but of everything to offer. Rock gardens, logs, stream crossings, steps, water bars, climbs, Decents, good Mileage.
It's a great out and back that will push you if you push it. It's a lot of fun!
Only downside is the need to navigate a few road sections to connect trail heads.
Either walk in Montgomery Mall or better yet, cross the street and walk in the park. You can do sections of the trail and don't need to complete the whole 11 miles. A great walk for a lazy summer evening with the spouse or a friend. You can also watch the kids train that runs in the park.
