The Bethesda Trolley Trail (BTT), also called the North Bethesda Trail, offers hikers and bikers an escape from the city by an accessible trail interwoven through quiet, picturesque residential neighborhoods of North Bethesda to the serene secluded paths around the National Institute of Health
campus leading right into downtown Bethesda. Over 6 miles long, the trail is a combination off-street, shared-use paths, on-street links using residential streets and sidewalks; it's accessible from five different Red Line metro stops. The BTT keeps and uses most of the original trolley paths that date from the 1890s and is one of eight rails-to-trails conversions in the Washington DC area.
