Greenbelt East Trail -- Connecting Greenbelt's Eleanor Roosevelt HS to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and on to the WB&A Trail

When the Patuxent River Bridge on the Washington Baltimore & Annapolis (WB&A) trail is finished in 2023, the trail will connect Prince George's County to the larger Maryland Trail Network with a safe route toward Baltimore and Annapolis.

The proposed Greenbelt East Trail would create a link between the WB&A and the Anacostia River Trail System via Greenbelt. The ARTS, in turn, connects to Washington DC, with onward trail links to Montgomery County MD and Northern Virginia.
