This is a loop trail that includes the woods and high prominences of Blockhouse Point Park with a horse trail through National Park Service land and a return along the C&O Canal towpath. Views of the Potomac from the high points are excellent. There are also 3.5 miles of side trails or alternate routes within MNCPPC land that are marked by signposts and blue blazes.
Equestrians should note that some of the trails prohibit horses. Please observe these restrictions. Bicycles are not allowed on any Blockhouse Point trails but may use the towpath.
