The updated description of this trial should include the fact that PG Parks and Recreation has, since over two years ago, been trying it's utmost to not only discourage--but physically prevent use of this facility for walking, biking, or jogging.
Indeed, between Oxon Hill Road and Tucker Road, there are 7 or 8 six-foot-high fences physically blocking the trail. All exits and entrances are similarly blocked.
While the trail is presently plastered with threatening signs noting that "THE TRAIL IS CLOSED," No clue is given for the closure. And, mind you, this situation has existed for over 2 years now without any observable improvements or other changes having been made to the facility.
Does anybody know the County's action or failure to act?

I live by it, its not a mtb trail but its still a good stretch to get your stamina up if your just starting out or working on your all out speed on flat surface, from Brinkley to Bock/Tucker rd.park then Tucker to Oxon Hill Rd. are the two stretches that matters most... Be careful crossing these roads because there dangerous and biking isn't the most popular thing in thi area yet

If you got it in you map a route from Temple Hills Rd. to National Harbor and cross the Woodrow Wilson Bridge then come back

Very, nice scenic trail for kids or advanced rider and is totally paved and wide. As an advanced rider I love this trail in its' entirety because it has flat twisting up down widing paths and can be very fast depending on the rider. My total ride time is 50 mins.

Customer Service

since it's is several parts, beginners should ride Temple to Brinkley. Brinkley to Bock is for intermediates. Only advanced riders should attempt that entire trail.

Since this is MTBreview I need to tell you that this is NOT a mountain bike trail. It is however a really pleasant place to ride for anyone in the Ft. Washington, Oxon Hill, Temple Hills area. Virtually flat, all paved and very fast. Everyone on the trail is very pleasant and courteous. I use only slicks here to enjoy the speed of this flat simple trail. Very cool wildlife too. Deer, fox, beaver and even an albino squirrel in the stretch between Indianhead Highway and Tucker road community center. Much nicer than you would expect for this area.
Giving it a low rating only because it isn't a good Mt. Bike trail.

Customer Service

The whole thing.
