Description

This 10.2-mile hard surface trail runs along, you guessed it, Sligo Creek. The trail connects New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park to Ventura Avenue in Wheaton. This is part of the Anacostia Trail System. The trail has many picnic tables that are great for a nice day along the creek. There are a total of seven road crossings spread out along the length of the trail.

Water and Restrooms are available along the trail.
