Bowie’s Scenic Trails

Old Town Bowie is beaming with rich autumn colors and brilliance.

Through the town of Bowie there are numerous nature trails and picturesque walking paths that offer opportunities for relaxation, reflection and recreation. Many of the trails are accessible by foot and others present ample space for cyclists as well as group walks.

On the first cool, sunny day of November 2011 this Bowie trail offers a quiet setting for an evening stroll between a young boy and his father. Brisk walkers, joggers and casual strollers were all out taking in the final days of Autumn 2011 and before the days are shortened by Daylight Saving Time this coming Sunday morning.

Luckily the recent below freezing temperatures and brief snow fall did not blow away the vibrant foliage from the many trees throughout Bowie. It is still time to take in some of the beauty that remains on the limbs that top roadways, walking trails and lawns in Old Town Bowie. Make sure to bring along your camera to preserve the splendor you are sure to encounter.

It's been about a year since I was back on Tanglewood, it is a nice trail once you get back, here is the directory listing I created it for it when we launched Patch: http://bowie.patch.com/listings/tanglewood-park-3#photo-1171540 I have some photos in there of the entrance off of Zugg, it's a little hard to find. Also, be careful when driving around back there, I got a decent sized nail in my tire when I went to get these photos... Thanks, Chuck, for your input!

I'll be darned. I live right next to this and never knew it was there. There are no signs up even at the entrance. I went there a couple days ago and there are trees down all over the trail, so it's obviously been quite a while since they were cleared.

With warmer weather expected this week, there will be plenty of opportunity to get out and view some of the trails now. My hope is to see what the view is like when fresh snow is covering the terrain. Bowie has so much to offer and far too often it goes underused and even unused.
