These aren't MTB trails, they're paved hiker/biker trails. That being said, they are extremely convient for many commuters, as they connect DC, UMCP, Greenbelt, Takoma Park, and Silver Spring. I used to use them to commute to school and back from Wheaton. The twisty sections of Sligo are actually kinda fun if you ride them fast, but lookout cuz there's always a whole heap ah families, little kids, old ladies, strollers, etc.
