But if you are going from WOD to DC you will be going down hill most of the time.

      There has been some rain in the past day but overall it has been clear. It is nice for the time that it is fall and the trees are turning colors.

       This is an amazing trail that has tons of cool place that you can go to on it. Also, this is the trail to take if you are riding into DC. The trail shows you a big part of the North Arlington area. Which is super nice to see from the trail if you have never been to Arlington before or if you are new.
