The first phase of the project involves building an access point from Fringer Road, as well as adding a driveway, a small parking area and stormwater management facilities, Wieprecht said. A 6-foot-wide “loop trail” covering about 30 acres would be built on the Bollinger parcel, which borders Md. 194, according to Wieprecht. The trail might be gravel, but plans are not set in stone, he said. The observatory would be the second and final phase of the project, according to Wieprecht.
