HikingGreat!

this was a nice little trail. it’s extremely flat and easy. If you’re feeling adventurous there are some hidden side paths you could follow to explore outside the main trail.

Hiking

As many other reviewers have mentioned, the trails are poorly marked, so plan to spend a bit of extra time to find and stay on the path. The strenuous stretch of the trail is aptly named - make sure to wear closed toed shoes if you decide to go down that path.

Nice little easy trail. The outer loop is very overgrown- stay on the path.

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!

Very nice, and maintained. A little crowded on the weekends, but the walk is nice and easy. Not too many hills but just enough to get the blood pumping.

This route isn’t marked and I had to use the AllTrails map the whole time. It doubles back on itself. There are better routes in rock creek park.

It was great! We could use better markings to clearly mark which trail u r on. Western is a big trail with blue, red, yellow, orange plus probably more, but I’m not which trail is which. Almost got lost! Thank God for Maps and Waze!

I love this loop trail. It’s full of fun and honestly I live in DC so to find a place where I can walk without seeing a lot of people. It’s a delight!!!

While this is listed as “road bike”, it is not. Only the very left edge is paved. The rest is gravel and packed dirt. Nothing really of interest to see either.

Hiking

Relatively easy loop in the heart of DC. little nuts having to cross over a main street to begin the hike but not too much time walking along the street. Steepish walk from beginning to end but really nice tree shade along most of the trail. perfect for a short walk.

Road biking

I rode my road bike. If you choose to ride, be aware there is a short set of steps in the Georgetown segment where you have to carry your bike. Also no biking allowed on the waterfront in front of sequoia. There was police there who told me to dismount and walk which was no fun since I wear clips so I was more waddling than walking. (I hadn’t seen the no biking signs.) There were tons of bikes chained to poles a long there. I guess everyone walked them there. I think people were eating brunch after their ride. Anyway, the segment wasn’t very long so I was able to waddle along.

While this was a nice hike, it does not take you by the amazing statues and memorial. I recommend going to the center of the island to see them after you have finished the route as recorded.

Road biking

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 is a forty-five minute walk around the island. Almost half of the trail is dirt and the other half is decked over swamp. Along the way you'll see the underside of the Memorial Bridge, pass the Marsh Swamp with a bit of History info on a post. Some history about Theodore Roosevelt as a naturalist as well. Pretty neat stuff. You might see turtles, bugs, and a deer! Very pretty with a bit of a jungle feel to it. Will likely return to this trial in the future!

Great hike with a killer hill at the end that got the blood pumping! Halfway point-ish is a spot to relax and eat/drink right next to the water.
