Description

This is a trail that has plenty of short burst hills perfect for a slightly more challenging hike in the woods. This alternate trail connects right in with the Muddy Branch Trail system to delightfully extend your hike along the stream valley, through lowlands, and elevated open wooded space, eventually ending above the Potomac River.
