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!

I love this trail. You can do the whole thing or not. Not to many people out.

My favorite type of road trail...mixed scenery, quiet, easy to pass pedestrians, and explores hidden parts of the city. Highly recommend beginning at the anacostia Rex center and head north. Marshes, meadows, good shade, and stop at the kenilworth botanical gardens along the way. Going south along the Potomac from the red center along the east bank is flat and plenty of dc sights...Nats park, capitol, etc. perhaps more fun for tourists, but standard stuff you can see from the highway for locals. Go north!!

This was a pleasant hike. Not particularly strenuous technically, but I’d probably have rated it a “moderate” on account of length alone. Pretty views of the creek going up the east side; the scenery going down the west side was pretty nondescript. Shaded throughout, so nice for a hot day.

Excellent trail with beautiful views of Kenilworth Aquatic Garden marshes and the Anacostia watershed. This map is for the loop but this trail also connects with the Anacostia river trail and we dipped off the loop and took the river trail to Bladensburg waterfront park.

Washington is such a wonderful place. I love all of the massive government buildings.

*SEE BELOW REVIEW BY SARAH F* Note: be prepared to struggle along the narrow and steep trail immediately after the chain bridge on the VA side, for the first 1/4 mile or so before you meet with the marked trail.

Nice day outing. We did the DC side first, crossed the Chain Bridge, and finished with the Virginia side. The first half-mile or so on the Virginia side is hardly a trail at all - there are no markers, no clear path through most of the rocks, and the climbs are quite treacherous especially if it's just rained. There's also a very sad amount of trash and garbage along the river front, despite efforts to leave out trash bags for visitors. About a half mile into the Virginia side, the trail blazes become more consistent, and there's a clear path to follow that takes you through a few stream crossings, past a pair of waterfalls, and multiple "beaches" along the Potomac. Another reviewer noted the change in blaze colors from turquoise to blue / the reverse, and we definitely noticed that as well - just keep something blue near by and the river on your left, and you're probably headed in the right direction! Overall a fun piece of nature hidden right in the city. (Also, beware of serpents!).

This was a great trail! Pretty well marked (Teal blue) throughout. The exception is between 2.15 and 3.0 miles. You definitely need to pay attention to the map at cruising points because you can get turned around. Now about that turnaround point OMG what a scramble. Be prepared for a short scramble and rock climbing. That part of the trail is narrow so be careful on the decent. Foot placement can be crucial. The waterfall and open waterways was a nice reward after the scramble. You can take a break right there before you head back. I’ll be doing this one again.

Nice trail! Made a loop up the strenuous into moderate. Was pretty muddy the closer you get to that loop.

on bicycle, or foot, is the best way to enjoy the DC area and monuments.
