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.

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.

Jones Fall Trail connects cyclists, walkers with Baltimore’s hidden gems

Bike PathsBy Rona Kobell, Bay journal

...
Both natives and newcomers can discover this part of town on the Jones Falls Trail. This nine-mile trail begins near Cylburn Arboretum in the northern Baltimore neighborhood of Pimlico, about a half-mile from the famous racetrack. It meanders through leafy expanses before reconnecting with city roads and depositing riders at the Inner Harbor. It’s open for walkers and bikers, though it seems most of the people using it are on two wheels — they can cover more ground that way.

The ride is a rare opportunity to see a city as it could be: Shops and restaurants fully integrated with green space, a place where one can hop on a bike in the morning and, depending on how fast one rides, be at the Inner Harbor in an hour having a deli sandwich and watching the yachts go by.
