This is a quiet walk on paved trails and sidewalks through a nice suburban community. It is rich in wildlife, including waterfowl and songbirds, and the occasional turtle. All walkers will pass the Bowie City Hall and Evergreen and Allen Ponds. The 10k trail also goes to Blacksox Park and past the National Capital Area Radio & Television Museum (open free to public Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.). Both trails finish back at the Bowie Town Center mall. There are dining opportunities in the mall to suit every pocketbook and taste. There are restrooms in Starbucks and the mall food court all year round and at several locations on the trail during the warm months. Pets are not permitted on the mall main street (Emerald Way) or in the Start Point. They are allowed on the trail and must be leashed at all times and cleaned up after. Both trails lie entirely within the City of Bowie and Prince George’s County.
