I used to own a junior McMansion up North Branch way and commute to Bethesda in a bicycular mode. The experience of 19 years leads me to believe that nothing one could build up there would encourage more than recreation (maybe just procreation) on warm weekends. I would far rather see facilities built down county or peri-Metro where they might get a car or two off the road.

The North Branch trail will get cars off roads and allow more people to access the park. Right now people drive to Lake Needwood from Olney to ride the Rock Creek trail. This connection will allow people to ride from Olney to the Rock Creek trail.

Yes it is a more recreation trail than transportation but it is a Park trail. Parks priority is recreation not transportation.

That being said, there is always some commuting opportunities with any multi-use trail.
