Good concrete path, straight and level.. just a little boring.. not close enough to the river or interesting sites, so kids find it a little boring..

Delightful trail and street ride. Not too crowded for a Sunday. Beach Drive closed to traffic in Kensington Sundays .

Trail was in hood shape and not too crowded. At one point a couple of bikers and I were holding up to let a big (4’-ish) black rat snake cross and a group of 20 something guys couldn’t be bothered and rode over it killing it... what a waste.

Nice trail for a medium distance ride. Moderately trafficked at evening hours. A few street crossings. Mostly through woods, passes through or near several small parks, and has connections to other trails. Signage is clear and very prominent. Alltrails App map still comes in very useful for staying on track. I parked at Lake Needwood near Rockville and rode to the DC border end and back to Lake Needwood.

I recommend starting at Winding Creek Park instead. There’s parking, port a johns, and water fountains.
