Western Maryland Rail Trail

Western Maryland Rail Trail OverviewWestern Maryland Rail Trail

The Western Maryland Rail Trail is a paved 23 mile rail trail located near Fort Frederick State Park in Big Pool, Md. The trail formerly the Western Maryland Railway is a popular destination for bikers, hikers and in-line skaters because of its relatively flat terrain and paved trail.

The trail parallels the very popular unpaved C&O Canal along the Potomac River and connects with the C&O in several places.

The trail is a favorite during the Fall for watching the fall foliage.

A 4.5 mile extension is in the works from Old Pearre Station to Little Orleans, Md.
