Take a Hike!  2016
Saturday, June 4


FoCJC is joining in the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day® (NTD), and we invite you to get outside and explore nature in your own watershed.   Be part of the nationwide community that celebrates the wild and wonderful treasures of our country.  Whether it's your first visit to the creek or a daily habit, there's something for everyone!


Plan your own self-guided adventure!

The Cabin John Trail is an 8.8-mile-long, natural surface trail that follows Cabin John Creek's mainstem from jsut north of the Potomac River in Cabin John to just south of Montrose Road in Potomac/Rockville.  Part of it, the Cabin John Stream Valley Park from MacArthur Boulevard to the Capital Beltway, has been designated a "Best Natural Area" for its diversity of flora, fauna, and geology.  The trail is maintained as part of the Cabin John Regional Park by Montgomery Parks, who have developed a great Trail Guide.  As you will see, there are multiple access points, so you can choose the length and type of adventure that suits you.  There are even sections for mountain biking.


Send us a photo!

We'd love to see you, your family, and friends enjoying your adventure on Cabin John Creek.  Go to our flickr page and post some pictures, with the names of the subjects and the photographer, the time/date of the photos, and your location on the trail. 


Lead a hike!

FoCJC is always looking for event leaders who want to share their love of the Creek with their neighbors.  If you would like to lead a hike, please let us know by emailing
