Anacostia RiverWalk Trail

The Anacostia RiverWalk Trail offers over 15 miles of separated, multiuse trails along or connecting to the Anacostia River in DC and Maryland. The Anacostia RiverWalk Trail (ARWT) is an extensive network of paths that extends along the Anacostia River from its confluence with the Potomac and up to Maryland. A bulk of the ARWT features wide multi-use paths that are perfect for walking, bicycling, running or your preferred non-motorized mode of transit.

Nearly 20 miles of trail are open and frequently used today, but ARWT is still expanding and will eventually provide seamless and scenic travel between destinations and neighborhoods along 28 miles of trail.
