Lace-up and Hit the Trails Today

The 3.5-mile Little Falls hiker-biker paved trail is largely shaded and offers unobstructed views of Little Falls.

The trail parallels the Capital Crescent Trail (CCT) starting at Mile 6 of the CCT and for about a mile shares the same right of way. The trail passes the former site of the Milton/Loughborough Mill, built in the early 1800s and used to grind flour for the Georgetown wheat trade.

Note: Between Dorset and Massachusetts Avenues, the trail uses Little Falls Parkway to connect the upper and lower portions of the trail.  Use caution and follow all traffic laws.

Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are “Shared by All” trails which includes hikers, bikers, and equestrians.
