Need to Know

There is a lot of traffic on Rt. 29/Colesville Rd. so if the intention is to access the Northwest Branch Trail to the north, it is best to go to the nearest crosswalk.

Description

New, fun singletrack that bypasses the section of the Rachel Carson Greenway Trail that parallels the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia.

Trail intersections are marked with really nice 6x6 posts. There are a couple of sections that use the old trail, which can be busy with pedestrian traffic, so be alert for walking daydreamers.
