Twin Valley Trail

The 22-mile Twin Valley Trail (TVT) combines the existing network of trails in Germantown and Twin Creek MetroParks with a connection to create a longer, more integrated backpacking trail system. The three main components of the trail include:

  • 7.5 miles along the Orange, Pink and Yellow trails at Germantown MetroPark
  • 8.4 miles along the Orange, Purple and Silver trails at Twin Creek MetroPark, and
  • A 5.4 mile connector trail that runs along Twin Creek and connects the two trail systems.
