Ma & Pa Trail Heritage Trail
The Ma and Pa trail is a beautiful trail located on portions of the former Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad corridor in Bel Air and Forest Hill, MD. The trail presently is in two segments, one that runs from Bel Air to Fallston, and another that runs through the Forest Hill Area. Great for running, walking, and strolling. Dogs must be leashed. Can get crowded on weekends. Many people do cycle on this path, but it can be tricky to navigate dog leashes and pedestrians during the weekends and nice evenings.
