Potomac Heritage Trail

I had an amazing time on this loop. I'm training for a trail run in a couple months so I thought this might be good practice. I started at Theodore Roosevelt Island, followed the river up to Chain Bridge, crossed the river, and came down the C&O Canal towpath. Aside from a couple places on Potomac Heritage where I didn't pay close enough attention to the blazes, the trail is well-marked and easy to follow.You should wear good hiking shoes ( no sandals or slick-bottomed sneakers ) because there is some scrambling over some large boulders and some tricky climbing near the Chain Bridge portion of the trail. The trail is well marked with a greenish blue blaze, at least in the north-bound direction.
