Ma & Pa Trail Heritage Trail
The Ma and Pa trail is a beautiful trail located on portions of the former Maryland & Pennsylvania (MA & PA) 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. Plans are underway to link the two segments of the trail, stay tuned!

Girls on the Run – At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
