Now Open: The Klingle Valley Trail

Saturday, June 24, 2017 saw the opening of the Klingle Valley Trail in Northwest Washington, DC. The conversion of this former commuter artery into its present state has been a long and controversial one that stretches back to 1991.  WAMU offers a fairly comprehensive overview of the various jurisdictional tensions that have surrounded this small stretch of land.

For runners, walkers, and cyclists, the completion of this trail project will (just about) seamlessly connect the Rock Creek Trail along Beach Drive with the trails at the Tregaron Conservancy, which remains one of Washington's best lesser known attractions.  Run there when you can!
