What a hidden gem, practically right in our backyard! Just a short jaunt off Route 28 (Darnestown Rd.)there are a series of trail access points. The Greenway trail system covers approximately 22 miles of woodlands, valleys, and pine ridges and is an excellent trail for hiking.

My favorite part of the trail is the 2.2 mile section off of Berryville Rd. In the fall, the trail and nearby woodlands are scattered with mushrooms of every color and variety. During the summer, this section is green and thick, but still well-travelled.

To get there, take Route 28 West, turn Left onto Berryville and follow it approximately 1.6 miles. The side trail comes out at a sharp bend in the road where the woods ends and a field begins. There is a wide grassy shoulder on the right hand side of the road, where one may park.

From here, take the connecter to the trail and continue off to your right. Enjoy rolling woodlands before coming out at a field and then it begins to follow the creek (on your left) before crossing over Route 28 and continuing on.

Great trail to hike/walk with your canine companion, as the creek comes into view towards the end of this section, and is a good spot for wading/cooling off.
