MA & PA 2018 Sun Ad FINAL

Upcoming Event

On October 20, 2018 join us to walk the two-mile route that will connect the Bel Air and Forest Hill Sections of the MA & PA Trail. The trail connection is scheduled to begin construction this fall, and be completed in 2021. This is your chance to see where the connection route will be.

With all the rain we have had, the woods will be very wet. Wear boots, long pants and sleeves. We will meet at the Williams Street trailhead at 1pm, where a bus will shuttle people to the trailhead at Blake’s Venture. We will then walk back to Williams Street, following the general direction of the planned connection route. Event is free, but donations to the MA & PA Heritage Trail are welcomed.


Thank you for coming to the MA & PA Heritage Trail webpage! Please consider supporting our trail by volunteering or becoming a member. More information can be found on our Membership webpage.

The MA & PA Heritage Trail is located on portions of the former Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad corridor in Bel Air and Forest Hill, Maryland. Our nonprofit organization, The MA & PA Heritage Trail, Inc, strives to make the MA & PA Trail the best place to walk, run and bike in Harford County! Currently, the trail consists of a 3.3-mile section in Bel Air and a 1.7-mile segment in Forest Hill. Recently, in partnership with the Town of Bel Air, Harford County has acquired an easement for a small stretch of land that will finally allow for the connection of its Bel Air and Forest Hill sections. The eventual connection will result in an 8-mile long trail that runs through the heart of Bel Air.
