Exploring the Urban Trails of Silver Spring, MD.

This past weekend was the 2106 MORE Winter Party/Meeting and a handful of us had a chance to explore some of the urban trails around Rock Creek along Silver Spring, Maryland. These are a few of the snapshots from that outing.

While we hit some off-road tangents, the majority of this route is clearly documented in Best Bike Rides Washington DC, a ride where I take riders along the entire Upper Rock Creek Corridor to Montgomery County and back along the Mathew Henson Trail, a hidden gem in this region’s trail system.

About a dozen of us headed out from the Gwendolyn E. Coffield Social Hall in Silver Spring, MD and hit the CCT (Capital Crescent Trail – not to be confused with Virginia’s Cross County Trail) before joining the Upper Rock Creek trail. From there we meandered through some of the adjacent neighborhood trails and explored other portions of the famous urban by-way before making it back to the starting point and the festivities of the 2016 MORE winter Party.
