What I found is a nice network of trails that while relatively flat, offer scenic overlooks out along the Potomac River. I didn't go very far, and I know there are much more technical sections that are part of the 50 mile race, but I found the trail to be easy and flat, but quite muddy. It rained a bunch earlier in the week, but it had been a solid 4-5 days since any rain, so I thought it would be more dried out. While most of the trail was dry, there were some sections that where my foot was nearly submerged in mud. But isn't that what trail running is all about - Facing unknown conditions and making the most of them?
