Capital Crescent Trail Info

The Capital Crescent Trail (CCT) is one of the most used trails in Montgomery County.  For better social distancing, we advise residents to consider alternative trails or plan your activity during off-peak hours, like early or later in the day.  

When using the CCT, or any trail, do not walk, run or bike in groups. Instead, move in single file. Side by side groups impede social distancing. Warn other trail users as you pass. Signal your presence with your voice, bell, or horn.
