This North Bethesda Trail is at a short trail that connects North Bethesda with access to the Capital Crescent Trail, primarily by bridging two major highways. The main aspects of this trail are the two pedestrian- and bicycle-only bridges across Interstate 270 and Interstate 495, the Beltway. Serious riders and walkers will certainly enjoy the convenience of having such dedicated bridges available, however the length of the trail, lack of actual connection to other trails or places, and the repeated reliance on streets to connect between dedicated sections make this trail either a local's only resource for low impact recreation, or a bicycle commuter's solution to crossing the nearby interstates.
