    yep, that's got to be the dumbest stop sign on the WOD - the northbound stop sign for cyclists as they hit the peak of the hill at Buckthorn.

    There's a tree down across the Custis just east of the Spout Run bridge. It's suspended about 6' above the trail by the soundwall and another tree, but it doesn't look stable.

    I've report to ArlCo.

    ... and who names a street after an invasive species, anyway?

    The usual spots of the W&OD at Wilson Blvd and along 4MRT near the airport are quite under water.

    Update: the trail has been reopened.

    Here's the report that I saw on Twitter: https://local.nixle.com/alert/5971537/
    5/24 - NW Branch Trail now OPEN. Temporary bridge repairs are complete.

    Please Note - Four Mile Run Trail work next week:

    A contractor has been hired to mark the Four Mile Run Trail (between George Mason Drive and Shirlington Road), and the Lucky Run Trail (between Arlington Mill Drive and Rt 7).

    Work is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday 5/30.
    Trails will remain open, but work crews will be directly on the trail.
    Paint will dry quickly, but avoid riding over fresh paint until completely dry.

    Use caution around the mobile work zone.

    Thank you for your understanding while this maintenance takes place to improve our trail system.

    The W&OD in Vienna will be packed with inattentive pedestrians due to the Viva Vienna festival this weekend. The festival runs from 10 am to 10 pm Sat and Sun, 10 to 6 Mon. Expect to walk your bike between Maple Ave and Ayr Hill, and approach the area with caution, particularly after dark! That said, it's a great, carnival-style festival, and super easy to get to on a bike!!

    Who says the NPS can't clear snow from trails? Photo from a friend riding in Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Oh wait, cars!
