This is an easy, accessible trail with pretty scenery, some nice little streams, and lots of little benches if you want to just sit and enjoy nature for a while. There’s almost always more deer then people visible on the trail and it’s the only trail in Greenbelt Park that you can’t see or hear the road from so it feels a lot further from civilization then it actually is. My only negative is that there is at least one foot bridge that is rotted and starting to fall in so keep an eye out for holes in the bridges. It’s better for walking then running because of the upkeep issues though but still one of my favorite trails for a quick hike after work.

A very pleasant five mile walk in the woods. A few spots are close to highways, but given its location, much of the trail (especially the southern part) was quite nice.

It is a nice place inside the Beltway to go for a relatively easy trail run and it is so much better than running on the roads. It for all the times I have been there, it has never been busy.

Very nice place to walk with my dog. I enjoyed it, will definitely go back.

Good quiet not challenging

Light traffic. No issues. Quite peaceful. Did 6.7 miles starting at Dogwood trailhead. Good markings. No ticks on me but I kept moving....no sitting.

Great place to go with young kids. All paved, short and flat, not very crowded and with some nice spots for picnicking. Parking at the entrance. I subtract one star because in some places the rail track is too close and a bit noisy.

Nice 2.25 mile figure 8 loop. Mildly trafficked. All paved. Geese, turtles, ducks, small birds, and bull frogs all over. It's also used as part of a larger bike trail.

Nice trail though highway views kind of takeaway from scenery

Walked most of the trail during an overcast, chilly day. Easy trail to hike (fairly well marked and no major elevation gains) and run. Not much to see in the winter but probably pretty in the summer.

Very nice walk in the woods. Training up for an AT hike...and this was nice short practice. Small rolling hills, not much other traffic.
Want to try other trails in this same park.
