The MA & PA Heritage Trail is located on portions of the former Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad corridor in Bel Air and Forest Hill, Maryland. Our nonprofit organization, The MA & PA Heritage Trail, Inc, strives to make the MA & PA Trail the best place to walk, run and bike in Harford County! Currently, the trail consists of five (5) sections and six (6) Trailhead Stations:

  1. From Edgeley Grove Park (Annie’s Playground) to Tollgate Road is 1.4 miles.
  2. From Tollgate Road. to Williams St. is 1.85 miles. 
  3. From William St to North Ave Station is 1.25 miles
  4. From North Ave Station to Blakes Venture park is  1.5 miles    (Under Construction)
  5. Blakes Venture to Friends park is  1.75 mile.

Recently, in partnership with the Town of Bel Air, Harford County has acquired an easement for a small stretch of land that will finally allow for the connection of its Bel Air and Forest Hill sections. The eventual connection will result in a nearly 8-mile long trail that runs through the heart of Bel Air. The finally section of the trail is scheduled to begin construction in the fall of 2024.
