Imagine a trail, a trail made of ice cream! Well, that's not what this is.

But the Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail is pretty cool all the same. Launched in 2012 by the department of agriculture to promote Maryland's dairy industry, the ice cream trail leads visitors to eight ice-cream-producing Maryland farms, stretching from Worcester to Washington County.

The eighth and newest farm on the trail is Keyes Creamery in Aberdeen, which is currently producing ice cream for the wholesale market and expects to begin retail sales sometime in June.

The trail was re-launched for the 2013 season in time for travelers to visit a farm or two over the Memorial Day weekend. Visitors who complete an Ice Cream Trail Passport will be eligible to be named Maryland's Best 2013 Ice Cream Trailblazer.

The passport, which doubles as a map to the participating farms, is available on the department of agriculture's Maryland's Best website.
