Description

On this trail, you can experience Washington, DC neighborhoods, a few sites along the Fort Circle and one of the area's best-kept secrets a run along Foundry Branch in Glover Archbold Park. Best of all, you can be sitting at home on a weekend morning, decide to take this run, and be out on the trail in no time at all. And there's no need to pack a lunch because the mid point of the segment goes right through Tenley Circle. Both ends are accessible via public transportation. You can also choose to run just the north or south portions, using the Metro station at Tenley as an end point

Great nature haven right in the neighborhood. Less traffic than Rock Creek Park Loop: Western Ridge to Valley Trails.
