Background

The Twinbrook Connector Trail is formerly known as the “Parklawn North Trail”. Located in the Rock Creek Stream Valley Unit #7 area, it is a 0.82 mile long shared use (hiker-biker) trail that connects Rock Mill Road near the Twinbrook Metro station with the Rock Creek Trail. It was built in 2018 partly through public amenity funding provided by the developer of the nearby Parklawn North office complex. Approximately 0.56 miles of the trail are paved asphalt. The asphalt section currently ends after the bridge over Rock Creek, with the remainder of the trail to the Rock Creek Trail consists of a natural surface trail parallel to Veirs Mill Road (MD 586).

MD 586 Veirs Mill Road Shoulder Connector Update

Montgomery Parks coordinated with Maryland State Highway Administration to develop a connection along the shoulder of MD 586 between the end of the asphalt portion of the Twinbrook Connector and the Rock Creek Trail. The connector was completed in Fall 2020.  It consists of a new segment of asphalt trail from the bridge over Rock Creek to connect to the shoulder of Veirs Mill Road, which users can traverse to access the Rock Creek Trail at Aspen Hill Road.  The shoulder connector is protected and separated from vehicle traffic by a barrier. Signage, marking, and sidewalk improvements have also been installed.
