A Secret DC Sidewalk…the Met Branch Trail

I’ve recently started using one of the best kept secrets of DC: the Metropolitan Branch Trail. Running alongside several stations on the eastern side of Metro’s Red Line, the Met Branch Trail feels secluded in a good sense of the word. On any given day I come across people walking and cycling to work, joggers, teens walking to and from school, moms with strollers, and others. What the trail doesn’t have (except on a small stretch I’ve avoided so far) is interference from cars.

The view along the Met Branch Trail is both great and varied– from old industrial buildings to rail yards to a view of the US Capitol and even great graffiti art (kudos to @PowWowDC).img_1432img_1424img_1430
