The Northwest Branch Trail—an integral part of the Anacostia Tributary Trail System—runs between Hyattsville and Silver Spring, linking two bustling suburbs of Washington, D.C. The trail is so named because it follows the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River for its entire route. The trail begins in the south in Prince George’s County, just north of where the river splits into its northeast and northwest branches. Appropriately, direct connections to the Northeast Branch Trail and Anacostia River Trail can be found here. North of this trail hub, the Northwest Branch Trail runs past a succession of parks.
