The trails are two 10km loops and two 5km loops, rated 2A, that take walkers through Historic Kensington, Howard Avenue Antique Row and up to the Mormon Temple Visitor’s Center to view annual holiday light decorations and displays in December. The trails also include a walk through Garrett Park and along Rock Creek Park’s hiker/biker trail to enjoy the fall foliage as well. Trails are on sidewalks, paved roadway shoulders and asphalt hiker/biker trail. It is suitable for strollers but wheelchairs may encounter difficulty.

We recommend walking with a group during evening hours, carrying a flashlight and wearing reflective clothing. Restrooms are available in the Safeway, Mormon Temple Visitor’s Center and Garrett Park Town Hall. Pets are allowed but must be leashed at all times during the walk; you must clean up after them. Pets are not allowed in shops, buildings or in the Temple’s Visitor’s Center.
