Trails

A comprehensive multi-purpose recreational trail system was first proposed in the Town’s 1990 Master Plan. Because the Master Plan guides development in Poolesville, subdivisions have included dedicated land and/or right-of-ways for the trail system. Currently, there are approximately 7 miles of trails located in Hunter’s Run, Tama, Woods of Tama, Elizabeth’s Delight and on Fisher Avenue. Several segments such as Collier Circle Pond to L.M. Stevens Park, Whalen Commons to Tama, and Tama to the Woods of Tama include a pedestrian bridge and a section of raised boardwalk across wetlands.

A multi-purpose trail system provides Town residents with:
  • healthy transportation alternatives independent of the automobile
  • safe off-road transportation for pedestrians and bicyclists to access community schools, facilities, and businesses
  • wide-ranging active and passive recreational opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities
