    The Capital Crescent Trail (CCT), a car-free trail, serves downtown Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring (via the Georgetown Branch) and Washington, DC.

It has 30 great points of interest, including four historic bridges, two historic tunnels, and provides beautiful vistas over the Potomac. It even takes you within a few blocks of the Bethesda Metro station as well as other top Bethesda destinations.
