Opportunities abound to explore wild nature, historic sites, museums, and fortifications. From hiking, biking, or horseback riding to canoeing, kayaking, or fishing, the Trail corridor offers outdoor recreation and avenues for discover. Enjoy wildflowers and fall colors. Or simply relax and enjoy serene moments basking in the solitude beneath a majestic oak, maple, or spreading sycamore. Visit the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail website for more information,
