Great for biking, C & O canal (which runs parallel) is better for walking

It's a nicely manicured trail. Beautiful scenery along the way. I'd definitely do it again

Great for biking. Can take this straight from Bethesda area into DC with very little difficulty, potential for good speed :o) . Now has pit stops along the way for minor bike repairs (air, chain fix). Also note: if you're biking, be nice to your fellow trail users and let them know when you're passing. I've seen a lot of oblivious people nearly get run over. Has a lovely section that goes through forested area near the canal. Can continue off the trail through DC up to Hains Point if you really want a good ride. Have accessed all sorts of other parts of DC from here, from The National Mall to Union Station to the Zoo.

Nice trail but crowded especially the Montgomery county section and especially on weekends. Many who live near the trail seems like treat the trail like an extension of their backyards while the rest of us are trying to get from point a to b or get some exercise. If walking or running be aware that bicycles share the trail. A better option for hikers/runners might be the C&O Trail which runs parallel to this trail for the first 2 or so miles out of Georgetown.
