Ma & Pa Trail in Forest Hill faces intermittent closures

The Harford County Department of Parks and Recreation announced there will be intermittent closures of the Ma & Pa Trail near Newport Drive in Forest Hill during construction of a building on private property adjacent to the trail.

The temporary closures of this area of the Ma & Pa Trail are for safety reasons only, the county government said in an advisory. The closures do not involve any work on the trail itself.

Bob Thomas, a county government spokesman, said the closures of the trail could occur at any time during the day. He did not know how long the closures might last.

The advisory took effect Monday morning. Thomas could not say how long it will be in effect.

The Department of Parks and Recreation said in the advisory it regrets any inconvenience such temporary closures may cause for users of the Ma & Pa Trail section in Forest Hill.
