Broadneck Trail

Broadneck Trail

The Broadneck Peninsula Trail is a hiker-biker trail that will ultimately connect the B&A Trail
near Route 2, with Sandy Point State Park; a distance of 9 miles largely along College Parkway.
In addition to the local transportation and recreation benefits of this project, the Broadneck Trail
also has national significance. The American Hiking Society has included the Broadneck Trail in
its vision for The American Discovery Trail; a trail that will extend from Point Reyes, California to
Cape Henlopen, Delaware. The Broadneck Trail’s ultimate connection to the B&A Trail will also
make it part of the East Coast Greenway, another national trail extending from Maine to Florida.

Phase 1A of the Broadneck Peninsula Trail is now open for the public’s enjoyment. The trail starts at
Green Holly Drive and continues along College Parkway and ends at College Parkway East. The trail
includes a spur to the Broadneck Library and a spur to Walnut Ridge Drive along Cape St. Claire Road.

The trail's total distance is 1.15 miles including the two spurs. The Broadneck Trail is located across
from the Andy Smith Equestrian Center and Broadneck Park. The Broadneck Trail is open dawn to dusk.
For additional information call 410-222-7317.

 Disclaimer for Broadneck Trail Phases I thru V Map:
The map for Phases I thru V is a visual representation of the 1999 Master Plan for the Broadneck Peninsula Trail. The alignment depicts proposed destinations for the trail at that time. Development of the additional phases will depend upon a number of considerations: available right of way, funding for design and construction, and input from stakeholders and other government agencies.
