Pope Branch Trail in Ward 7 is the first unpaved trail in DPR park system inventory !
DPR hosted two Student Conservation Association (SCA) crews consisting of 12 high school members and two adult crew leaders working to establish a hike-worthy trail. The crew cleaned the park, cut new trail, and created several visitor access structures.
The scenic trail covers close to one-mile along the Pope Branch tributary of the Anacostia River watershed.
Don't miss this exciting ribbon cutting.
