MD State Parks - Accessible Park Trails
The Boardwalk Trail is .25 miles in length and is fully accessible. The trail ends at the base of the park's scenic 78-foot waterall. The Boardwalk Trail parking lot is open only to vehicles displaying the handicap accessible symbol.
This 21 mile abandoned railroad bed makes an ideal surface for hikers, bikers and horseback riders to enjoy. The rail trail, formerly the NCR Trail, has been officially renamed the Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail, in honor of Maryland's third Maryland Department of Natural Resources Secretary. Dr. Brown's vision was the major driving force in developing this multi-use recreational trail.
Western Maryland Rail Trail
The WMRT currently offers about 23 miles of flat, paved trail surface. The eastern terminus of the trail, known as Big Pool Station, is located ½ mile west of historic Fort Frederick State Park in Washington County, Maryland. Many visitors begin their WMRT excursions here although some prefer to start at the western terminus located in Pearre, Maryland, near Sideling Hill Wildlife Management Area. The WMRT parallels the C&O Canal for its entire length.
