Anne Arundel County is building an extensive network of recreation and transportation trails for its citizens. Our trails are the most heavily used facilities in the department and annually host more than 2 million visits. Two of the developing national trails, the East Coast Greenway
and the American Discovery Trail
intersect in Anne Arundel County. Citizens and visitors can enjoy a trip on the Baltimore and Annapolis Trail
, Broadneck Peninsula Trail
, the BWI Trail
that circles BWI International Airport in Linthicum, or the WB&A Trail
All forms of human powered transportation are allowed including walking, jogging, inline skating and skateboarding, cycling, and in some areas equestrian sports. Electric Wheelchairs and Electric Medical Assistance Devices (EMADs) are also allowed. Use of an EMAD requires the operator to have a department permit. See a Park Ranger or call the Ranger Station for information on an EMAD permit.
