New Years Day 2010 Update:
Someone has “defaced” the directional trail sign at the Grubb Road access path to the Georgetown Branch Trail – by cutting away some green paint at the arrow to Silver Spring so that it now points right instead of left. This is one time when defacing a sign makes it much better, or at least more accurate.
Now if we can only do something about the milage, it is over 2.0 miles to Silver Spring. And also about the spelling of “Future Capitol Cresent Trail”.
November 29, 2009:
The Coalition for the Capital Crescent Trail (CCCT) website reports at its News and Events page that Montgomery County DOT has recently placed new wayfinding signs on the Georgetown Branch Trail at Rock Creek Park. As CCCT notes, the new signs were badly needed to replace the very confusing wayfinding signs that predated the opening of the Rock Creek trestle over six years ago.
One of the new signs needs a “redo”. This sign appears on the Trail where the access path from Grubb Road/Terrace Drive meets the Trail. This sign puts Silver Spring to the west, west of Rock Creek and near Bethesda.
At least the sign does not say “Silver Springs”.
