Easy stroll with pretty stream views. The trail is well-marked and not too crowded on a sunny spring Sunday. Little elevation change may make this unsatisfying for folks looking for a big workout, but the series of trails is suitable for the whole family! The Rachel Carson Conservation Park honors writer, environmental activist, and county resident Rachel Carson by conserving 650 acres in the Brookeville area of Montgomery County. Show more
