Glover-Archbold Trail (Access Spur) Professional Reviews and Guides
"If you’re tired of being in the city, but don’t have time to go out to the country, this short hike through the woods will restore your spirits and bring you back to nature.
Glover-Archbold Park is a wooded oasis in the midst of the city. Named for two Washington citizens who donated land for the park, it is part of the larger Rock Creek Park system. Portions of the path follow Foundry Branch, which leads to the C&O Canal. Depending on the season and the precipitation, the creek can be nearly a dry bed, or can hold gently flowing water. Autumn is a wonderful time to hike here, when the old oak and beech trees turn color and the weather is crisp. In summer, it’s a cool oasis from Washington’s humidity."
