Happy Trails to You

May 25, 2017

ROSS’ apartments in College Park, MD, invite you to take a hike… on these five great trails.

There’s a popular TV show where “walkers” are something bad – something to stay away from. That’s not the case for residents of ROSS’ apartments in College Park, MD!

Walkers are welcome here, along with inline skaters, bicyclists, equestrians and even cross-country skiers. Whether you’re letting off steam, keeping your heart healthy, sightseeing or just killing time, these trails will take you where you need to go.

 

Paint Branch Trail (3.5 mi. – Asphalt)

Trail Activities: Biking, Walking

“This is a very beautiful trail starting from lake Artemesia and ending near the Cherry Hill park. The lake is extremely peaceful with lots of lily pads in full bloom during the summer. The trail is surrounded by quite thick greenery on both sides.”   – A.D.

 

Lake Artemesia Trail (1.35 mi. – Asphalt)

Trail Activities: Inline Skating, Fishing, Horseback Riding, Biking, Mountain Biking, Walking, Cross Country Skiing, Wheelchair Accessible

“This is a nice trail with great views of Lake Artemesia…Trail is about one mile around the lake but the views are spectacular. There are other branch-off connecting trails. If you want to enjoy a casual ride while enjoying great scenery, this is it.” –K.J.

 

Indian Creek Trail (1.5 mi. – Asphalt)

Trail Activities: Biking, Walking, Inline Skating, Horseback Riding, Wheelchair Accessible

“Maryland’s Indian Creek Trail…serves as a vital link between the town of Berwyn Heights…and scenic Lake Artemesia to its south. The trail runs entirely through dense woodlands, providing an abundance of shade and making this trail slightly cooler than others in the humid summer months.” –TrailLink

 

Northeast Branch Trail (3.5 mi. – Asphalt)

Trail Activities: Biking, Walking, Inline Skating, Horseback Riding, Mountain Biking, Wheelchair Accessible

“Begin your journey at scenic Lake Artemesia. South of the lake…the trail continues through the woods…before emerging into Riverdale Park. The popular park contains playgrounds, ball fields, restrooms and a water fountain.” –TrailLink

 

Rhode Island Avenue Trolley Trail (3 mi. – Asphalt)

Trail Activities: Inline Skating, Walking, Biking, Wheelchair Accessible

“The short, paved trail follows the route of the trolley that once ran from Washington, DC, to Laurel, Maryland, between 1903 and 1958. Mostly shaded nearly all year by walnut, maple and flowering trees that tower near the trail from neighboring yards, the rail-trail also serves as something of a home-and-garden tour.” –TrailLink

 

Whichever trail you choose, it’s time you put your foot down and demanded a better place to live. Come tour the apartments for rent College Park deserves – brought to you by ROSS.
