The Anacostia Tributary Trail System provides miles of uninterrupted trails along the tributaries of the Anacostia River. The continuous greenway traverses a variety of natural environments from woodlands to open fields, including many wetlands. It's a wonderful place to experience nature and welcome relief from automobile traffic. Activities available along the trail include fishing, bird watching, hiking, jogging, walking, horseback riding, and in-line skating.
