A portion of the Metropolitan Branch Trail at the Silver Spring Metro
Station has been opened to enhance accessibility around the Transit
Center. The trail reestablishes pedestrian connections from the
northbound MARC platform.
The portion of the trail that was opened Thurday extends from the south end of the MARC train platform to the transit plaza in front of the Metro Station.
During the next month, weather permitting, the trail will be extended to Ripley Street.
There are photos of the trail here.
