Northwest Branch Trail

by MCS Staff

Northwest Branch Trail’s geographic diversity attracts hikers, bikers, and dog walkers

Looking for a spot to spend MoCo’s occasional warm winter days? Try the Northwest Branch Trail.

With its main entrance next to Trader Joe’s on Columbia Pike, the trail follows roughly eight miles of the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River.

In the pictured part of the trail, one can hike up a hill to meet the Copperhead Run; climb over rocks and sit in sand next to the water; and mountain bike.

According to Montgomery Parks, horseback riding is permitted, too.
