Little Falls Branch Stream Valley Park Trail

Little Falls Stream Valley Park Trail Map Locator Description

The 3.5-mile Little Falls hiker-biker paved trail is largely shaded and offers unobstructed views of Little Falls.

The trail parallels the Capital Crescent Trail (CCT) starting at Mile 6 of the CCT and for about a mile shares the same right of way. The trail passes the former site of the Milton/Loughborough Mill, built in the early 1800s and used to grind flour for the Georgetown wheat trade.

Note: Between Dorset and Massachusetts Avenues the trail uses Little Falls Parkway to connect the upper and lower portions of the trail.

Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are "Shared by All" trails which includes hikers, bikers and equestrians. Additional information about permitted uses of Park trails is available on our Trail User Information page.
