HikingOff trailOver grownScramble

Did the loop clockwise, lot’s of fun on the Potomac Heritage Trail portion, challenging at times, waterfalls, rock scrambles, sometimes the trail was poorly marked. The All Trails route was a bit confusing around Chain Bridge, felt like I was off trail. The C&O Canal portion of the loop was comparatively boring but appreciated an easier stretch.

Great trail with a lot of variety including, waterfalls paved and unpaved paths and plenty of scrambling up and down rocks. I recommend parking in the lot for Theodore roosevelt island first then starting with the virginal loop first into maryland then back across the key bridge at the end!

A little muddy, towards the end dont take the strenuous path or you'll miss your cutoff.

Nice path - We walked the stretch between Key Bridge and Lock 6. Lots of nice side trails and river views. We also had a stroller - not as smooth as an asphalt path but honestly not that bad (a little bumpy because of the gravel). But it's totally doable with a sturdy stroller. There was moderate bike traffic but it was still a nice walk for all of us.

HikingGreat!

For the most part, this is a great trail, awesome to walk so far through the city on forested paths. Look out for the connection between Glover Archibald and the Canal trail. When we were there it was closed off and we couldn't figure out how to make the connection. Ended up on city streets for the rest of the walk home.

Nice asphalt trail. Lots of bikers. Enjoyed the architecture of the bridges overhead.

WalkingGreat!

I’m used to backpacking and this is not that. But I still love it. Paved. Two lanes so bikes have a clear path. Lots of offshoots into gardens. A small creek runs beside the trail and provides calming sound. There are a number of benches where you can sit and read. It is heavily trafficked. So go super early and during the week.

Hiking

This was a great hike but hard to follow in two places due to the “tiered layers” along the water. (Needed a 3D map basically). I couldn’t tell which path I was supposed to be on And it seemed to change! But the worst part was the start. Trailhead as posted is above the trail, on street, by a bridge. There’s no way to get under the bridge on the trail as indicated and it’s a long, long way down. The adjoining park (Walter pierce park) has fencing up so you can’t go down the slope. Instead cross the Duke Ellington bridge and turn left and head down the exit ramp. I skipped the Glover archibald segment since I hiked that recently and cut through Georgetown university instead. The bottom part of Glover archibald has been closed since 2016 so I knew I couldn’t follow that part anyway. Exiting Georgetown university, It was hard for me to find the trail to the underpass to get to the c&o canal part. Just knowing access was via underground tunnel would have helped me immensely. Despite cutting out the Glover archibald section I logged over a mile longer than indicated.

Hiking

The beginning half is pretty easy as first and then it gets tougher half way through. I tried running most of the trial but walked when I hit the rocks and some trails were pretty close to the water. Got lost for a second when I hit the bridge. Found my way and then on the way back was nice since it was a bike path. I tried running some of it but honestly I was pretty beat at this point. Luckily there’s a pit stop after the bridge and a small store that has drinks and snacks! They take Apple Pay so that came in handy as I don’t run with my wallet.

I wanted to take a short stroll along the canal but it had recently rained and it was very muddy. Made it about a mile before I gave up on the mud and trying to find a way around very large puddles.

beautiful trail, goes right under CT ave and connects to rock creek/WIS gardens, but is either a straight incline or decline depending which way you take it

HikingGreat!No shadeRockyScramble

We usually do this trail in a clock wise direction. This way we get to do harder part first the Virginia side and then do the easy towpath. The trail gets really hard around the chain-bridge area. They have installed metal handrail which makes it a bit easy but still some scrambling before you get to chain bridge rd. It is not very well marked around George Town to get back on bridge. The staircase is easy to miss if you are not paying attention. All in all it make good 4.5 hrs long hiking!
