Anacostia Tributary Trail System Reviews

Not bad

Narrow trail running along a median strip of woods. Nice if you are using it to commute to different parts of the city but if you are using it for a nice ride I would skip this one. There are a lot of street crossings so its very stop and start. Also lots of construction breaking up the ride.

A surprisingly beautiful trail

A well-paved asphalt trail that runs between approx. Hyattsville MD and Greenbelt MD, it has just a couple of road crossings and runs across a particularly nice stretch of the Northeast Branch of the Anacostia River. Wide expansive vistas across fields, views of the river, along the edge of city parks, and winding up in the more forested section near Greenbelt Park. Not overly crowded.
