Trail shared by Trey Lord

A great neighborhood connecting Nebraska Ave. with the C&O Canal Trail.

Description

This is a great neighborhood trail starting at Nebraska Avenue, and continuing all the way down to the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath. Along the way, you'll pass the Battery-Kemble Park, and enjoy the beautifully wooded sections of this trail.

There is a large junction where the Battery-Kemble meets with the trail that runs through Wesley Heights Park, but stay west to remain on the Battery-Kemble.

If you're looking for a longer endeavor, there are many places along this trail to add connections to other trails.

Flora & Fauna

Racoons, foxes, birds (especially geese) and the occasional coyote have all been sighted, so keep your eyes open!

Nice trail, steeper than Glover Archibald. Transition over to C&O Canal is difficult- not clearly marked 1.2mi
