This section of the Potomac Heritage Trail is a section that runs through the Lansdowne community. It is disconnected with the rest of the trail network but future efforts seek to connect it from DC along the Potomac to Leesburg.

The trail is very flat. It travels along the river. It's very hard for anyone to get lost.

A few mikes into the trail, it takes you next to the golf course.

The only issue is that the bridge (beneath Rt. 7) that connects the parking lot to the trail head no longer exist. Cross the river using Rt. 7 and find the trailhead over the fence/rails.
