Rock Creek Park, D.C.

At 25-miles long and with plenty of points of interest along the way, the Rock Creek Trail stretches from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. to Lake Needwood Park in Montgomery Country, Maryland. As it's a fairly popular path, the Washington Area Bike Association warns that the D.C. areas of the trail can get quite crowded on weekends and holidays, especially when the weather is warm. But with plenty of sightseeing opportunities and a beginner-friendly terrain it’s well worth a ride. “I'm far from a pro, but when I can ride my bike to work, it's a true highlight,” says Kate Gibbs, Media Relations Manager for Destination DC
