Bel Air trail chugs along

The Baltimore Sun

The MA & PA Heritage Trail in Bel Air, which runs along the old Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad corridor, was built 10 years ago. Bikers, dog walkers and nature lovers frequent the path, which is now two miles longer, from Tollgate Road to Edgeley Grove.

A "Trail-a-bration" will be held Saturday to mark the anniversary of the trail and celebrate the new addition. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad was established in 1901 and ran from Baltimore York, Pa. It was 77 miles long and crossed 111 bridges. The mail and passenger service stopped in 1954.
