Reply To: Bike Routes Near Petworth


Hi Chelsey,

I love is Silver Spring and the only trail option I know of near downtown Silver Spring is Rock Creek trail going North. You can access the trail at Medowbrook Stables (off of 410/East-West Highway & Beach Drive). Not exactly a straight trail to follow, but if you ride all the way to Lake Needwood and back, you can definitely get the mileage you are looking for.  The other option is to take beach drive towards Rockville/Bethesda, but traffic can be heavy at times on Beach Dr. and too dangerous during the week with people rushing to/from work.  Hope that helps!
