Gwynne's Falls Trail

Gwynne's Falls Trail is officially open.

Secretary Flanagan, May O'Malley, the head of Rails to Trails were all there--and Congressman Ben Cardin (our next Senator?) took his bike for the 10-mile ride before the ceremony.

Take a spare inner tube and pump just in case there have been reports of lots og glass on the trail.

The Northern Chesapeake trail

The Northern Chesapeake trail from Easton-Lewes is getting started. Easton already has five miles. The state is giving AA the go-ahead to get started planning a trail along the light rail line from BWI to Harbor Hospital, i.e., connect with Gwynne\'s Falls trail

DNR Opens All Sensory Trail at Patapsco Valley Sate Park

Bike PathsDNR and partners hosted a ribbon-cutting for the new All Sensory Trail at Patapsco Valley State Park on October 16th.

The first-of-its-kind within a Maryland State Park, this Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-accessible path has items that play on the senses to offer an exciting interactive experience for everyone, including people who are vision or hearing impaired.

The trail was created over the summer by youth from the Corps groups, with assistance from DNR, the National Park Service and the Maryland School for the Blind. The youth worked hard to create this special place, along the way learning valuable job skills, gaining an appreciation for nature and seeing firsthand the value of teamwork.

Accessible for people of all abilities, the trail features a walking guide rope, aromatic herbs and plants, beautifully painted birdhouses alive with chirps, melodic drums and chimes, and a variety of interesting plants for touching.

The construction represents phase one of the trail, to be enlarged and enhanced in the summer.

ROUND FALLS, BALTIMORE

Bike PathsVia What Weekly

Jess Bither writes her way under the highway.

It’s difficult to view Round Falls from the highway overhead; it’s even hidden to runners along the Jones Falls Trail. Round Falls is out of view, not easily accessible, and unknown to most people in Baltimore. I first became curious about this not-quite-natural-not-quite-urban environment thriving underneath the Jones Falls Expressway while living in Remington.
