Oxon Run Trail
Completing the trail loop through Southeast DC and Prince George’s County
Oxon Run Trail is part of a system of trails running through Oxon Run National Parkway in Southeast DC, and into neighboring Prince George’s County. This area is underserved by trails; the few trails that do exist are disconnected from one another. Recently, Oxon Run Trail was expanded and upgraded, with wider paths and better lighting, but completing significant stretches of incomplete trail will make the necessary connections to form a network.
Jurisdiction: DC, National Park Service and Prince George’s County
Length: 4.8 miles remaining
Plan Reference: MoveDC, NPS Paved Trails Plan, Oxon Run Trail Rehabilitation Project
Status: Partially funded
Once complete, Oxon Run Trail will be more than just a trail system in a park, extending beyond the park boundaries to connect Eastover Shopping Center, Forest Heights Elementary School, Southern Avenue and Naylor Road Metrorail Stations. It will connect with the planned Oxon Cove Hiker-Biker Trail and South Capitol Trail.
