Planners are trying to figure out how to connect the Capital Crescent Trail (on a trestle) to the Rock Creek Trail 40 feet below.

Thank you Photoshop. Actually the Planning Board recommends a switchback ramp system
at a cost of $1.4M. I’ve labeled it “switchback chosen” on this planning diagram. “A new option” is my own (inferior) path idea, which adds about 1/3 mile for CCT users coming from the west. Not shown is another option, putting a path along Jones Mill Road from the CCT south to the park.
