Visiting Tips

Most of the rides in this region are rideable all year round. The Frederick Watershed, Gambrel State Park, Emmitsburg, and trails in the George Washington National Forest tend to do better when conditions are wet in other area trails. MORE has a "trail status" page which is updated by local riders, please check it, or better yet, submit your trail reports to alert other users of trail conditions.

Food and Drink

After the Hike: Local Favorites

Protein Bar Fantastic selection, amazing high-energy food in a bright clean venue
Oyamel Cocina Mexicana This Mexican playground from creator Jose Andres is a trailblazer. Thanks to recent expansion next door, it's also more comfortable than ever.
Wiseguy NY Pizza Most authentic NY pizza I have had in DC. It's delicious. They also have EXCELLENT garlic knots - an impossible find in DC.
Daikaya High-5 the manager Eddie for wearing a Hugh & Crye shirt.
Beef N' Bread Cali beef or Cali turkey. Amazing sandwiches with delicious crispy bacon.
a baked joint Don't miss the biscuit with chesse and egg. It is happiness
440 K St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 408-6985
Central Michel Richard Best bets: lobster and tuna burgers in addition to the beef standard. The fried chicken is also incredible.
Pi Pizzeria Their deep dish “The Kirkwood” cops ingredients like mozzarella, Italian meatballs, and red peppers, presumably named for what Shatner gets every time he hears someone mention deep dish pizza.
910 F St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 393-5484

Nando's PERi-PERi This Nando's location is hands down the best in the area - the staff are super sweet

707 H St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 719-0111
Busboys and Poets Named after the poet Langston Hughes, this restaurant/bookstore/fair-trade market is a favorite hangout among NPR staffers.
Matchbox Vintage Pizza Bistro If God ate pizza, He'd eat at matchbox. At the fucking bar. And He'd cuss because God rocks you. I reccommend the following bartenders: Shannon, Laura, Eric and I'm warming up to Lauren and Lindsey.
