2- slow down. Slower speeds allow the animal to get a better look at you. If you've announced your presence with a little shout or talked to the rider, the animal knows you're some kind of person, which should hopefully make them less alarmed about this bizarre thing that seems to run without legs. I know that if you're out training, slowing down isn't what you want to do, but it is the safest thing for everybody (this goes for if you are driving a car, as well- pass wide, and slowly. do not honk the horn, LOL)
3- If the horse starts jumping around, ask the rider how you should proceed. They may simply need a second to get out of the way and stopped so you can pass safely.
It is looking more and more like a proposed pedestrian and bicycle path along the Cromwell Bridge Road corridor will not go through Cromwell Valley Park.
"We're keeping all options open," 5th District county Councilman Vince Gardina said of the various routes that have been proposed.
"One of our concerns is that we have to be sensitive to Cromwell Valley Park, which is a passive park and an environmentally sensitive area."
A resolution sponsored by Gardina and passed by the County Council earlier this month gave the green light to the Department of Recreation and Parks and the Office of Planning to determine a route for the trail and figure out how to pay for it.
The Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway (LSHG) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to stimulate local economic activity by developing a linkage between our natural, historic and cultural resources. This linkage is a series of land and water recreational trails that weave our past into our future while promoting an understanding and appreciation for the character of this region.
Once you experience all the Lower Susquehanna Heritage Area has to offer, we believe you will share our vision to create 40 miles of continuous public recreation trails connecting Harford and Cecil Counties.
Cyclists who ride on the B&A Trail in Anne Arundel County should be aware that a 0.4-mile section of the trail between Severna Park and Arnold is closed due to a washout. The section in question extends from milepost 4.0 southward to the intersection of Hoyle Lane, which is just north of milepost 3.5. This section of the trail will remain closed until repairs can be made. (I'm guessing this probably won't be until the weather gets a little warmer.)
The following detour is posted around the closed section:
Please write your councilman urging him to support a trail study for a bike/ped facility concept that is being proposed by Baltimore County Planning along Cromwell Bridge Road/Minebank Run that would provide a nonmotorized link between Towson neighorhoods and the major recreational destinations just north of us. This concept is part of the Eastern Baltimore County Bike/Ped plan. A trail study would be the next step now that the concept has been proposed within the plan. The most important councilmen to contact are from the 3rd and 5th district as the proposed trail goes through their district.

A July 29, 2005 Baltimore Sun article details a partnership between Friends of Anne Arundel County and the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department to develop "Planet Walk." The large-scale public art installation will be complete in 2007. But for now, fans of art and trails can see the sun and Pluto - which towers 20 feet above the surface of the smooth, paved trail. Take a walk on the wild side...
