The Seneca Creek Greenway Trail follows Great Seneca Creek in Montgomery County. It is a wooded, natural surface trail that extends from the Potomac River to the Damascus Regional Park trail system.The trail is intersected by several roads, most of which have areas to park. Parking locations are noted on the map. Using these crossroads, you may tailor the distance of the hike. You may choose an out-and-back hike or a point-to-point hike if you have two cars. Some sections of the trail allow horses and bikes and some do not. This is the lower section of the trail. It extends from the Riley's Lock trailhead on the Potomac River to the crossing at Riffleford Road, which is off of Rte 28 near Darnestown. This section is about 11 miles long. Some of the trail is on the Seneca Creek floodplain and can be very muddy after a rain or a thaw.Show more
