Georgetown Capital Crescent Rail Trail

The Capital Crescent Trail (CCT) is a shared use off-road trail from Georgetown in the District of Columbia to Silver Spring, Maryland, built upon the abandoned railbed of the 11 mile Georgetown Branch of the B&O Railroad. The trail is paved from Georgetown to Bethesda, where it becomes packed crushed stone trail to Lyttonsville. Four bridges and two tunnels are among the roadway crossings. Point and click on any part of the Trail on the map below for a larger view of that section. The map is available as a folding pocket map. Send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Coalition for the Capital Crescent Trail, P.O. Box 30703. Bethesda, MD 20824. Map created by Equator Graphics, Inc.
