Features -none-

While this section of the Rachel Carson Greenway Trail is multi-use, the southern section (between Randolph Rd and Colesville/29) is still hiker-only.

Description

While generally flat, this trail has plenty of rollers and a few small stream crossings to keep it interesting.

The section that parallels Bonifant Road is perpetually muddy, so consider riding the road instead of this wet section, but don't miss the final climb/descent to Alderton Road.
