MA & PA Heritage Trail is located on portions of the former Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad corridor in Bel Air and Forest Hill, Maryland.
We help make the trail the best place to walk, run and bicycle in Harford County.
Update, November 2, 10:30: Walk update: Hold onto your hat. The Connect the Trail continues, though we may be adjusting some details due to blustery weather. It is likely we will not walk the entire connection, which involves a lot of trees with potential branch falls and wet conditions.
Instead, the vans will take us to North Avenue (near bypass) and the walk will proceed from there. This still gives everyone a chance to see the area that we still need to connect (as well as one of the alternate routes.) Fun, live music and snacks to be had at Williams St all afternoon. Come to see us one way or another! We may need to adjust as weather conditions evolve, but we think we have a plan.
Update: November 2, 10:09 a.m. Walk update: Good morning! The Connect the Trail celebration is on today from 1 – 4. We plan to walk the proposed connection unless the temperature and/or winds make it impractical. If not, we will stay in the Williams St. trail head area for live music from local band Birddog and activities by Bel Air Athletic Club trainers. Thanks to Phil Rhudy of Independent Brewing Company for allowing us to use the grassy space behind his proposed brewery as a site for some of the festivities. He’s been a big supporter of this walk and the plans for trail connection.
