    After the heavy rain last night, there were some minor effects on the trails.
    I did an Arlington Loop before 8am, sticking to 4MRT between Shirlington and Glen Carlyn park. Mostly tree litter, a...

    Hmmm, so I think someone, or a strong gust, toppled them this morning. I think I would have noticed them before I even got at the right angle to see the truck (I was heading south). Or I am becoming...

    What time was that? I went through at about 6:40am and did not see them all fallen over, but I was likely more concerned with not running into the NPS garbage truck parked next to all and on the...

    Thank you for bringing this up - we so often only remember the bad ones.

    That is a better way to put what I meant. My point had been they were not paying attention and just did what they wanted, despite my warnings. Headphones/earbuds are one way people are not paying...

    May 2021 - Road and Trail Conditions

    Goslings! And guardian (often hissing) parent Canada Geese are out on the trails. Be careful.

    And this is starting out to be a season with a bumper crop of trail-side poison ivy - be wary when...

    Really? Given the numbers of dockless bikes and scooters scattered all around (and often on) the MVT and East and West Potomac Parks (and elsewhere on NPS land), I wonder what they do to stop it. ...

    I can say that as of Tuesday morning, 3/2/21, it still wasn't open. However, it is close. They look to be finishing up the fencing on the rails to keep people from falling off the bridge. Not sure if...

    At about 7am the trails could be treacherous. The rime wasn’t too bad in terms of being slippery, but all the re-frozen melt was bad. If we freeze again tonight, these areas might be a problem:

    When you say "Puncture strip" do you mean something like rhinodillo strips? If so, then that is likely the problem. I had three flats in 2 days due to that. The strip was cracking longitudinally and...
