Bulldozer sighting at the Rock Creek Hiker-Biker Trail

Disclaimer: The Purple Line Construction Project has been going on since we started visiting this trail back in March 2020. This visit was the first time there were active trucks working while we were there. The trail was open anyways and the workers gave us thumbs up of approval while the kids observed them. Even though, you should proceed with caution and in the event the trail is closed, don’t trespass.

Where? Rock Creek Hiker-Biker Trail starting at Ray’s Meadow Park, Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA

How much? Free

Open/Closes: From sunrise to sunset. You can find more information about the trail here and about the park here

This post is about the experience of seeing the trucks in action. I have an entire post dedicated to the details of this trail. You can check it out here.

More details of Our Experience

I think the easiest way to get to the Purple Line Construction area is to park your car at Ray’s Meadow Park.

Assuming you have Ray’s Meadow Park in front of you, you are going to walk to the right, and you will continue there. You’ll pass a huge field used mostly to play soccer. Continue on and you’ll get to the intersection between Rock Creek Trail and Georgetown Branch Trail. Keep going.

You will continue on Rock Creek Trail and soon you will see the Purple Line Construction.

Remember, the Purple Line Construction Project has been going on since we started visiting this trail back in March 2020. This visit was the first time there were active trucks working while we were there. The trail was open anyways and the workers gave us thumbs up of approval while the kids observed them. Even though, you should proceed with caution and in the event the trail is closed, don’t trespass.

I hope you have a great time visiting this place. Being in contact with nature is proven to make you feel better and happier. Let me know if you go how it goes and remember that the easiest way to stay posted and in touch is to follow me on insta, where I also share videos of the places in my stories/highlights!
