WB&A Trail

WB&A Trail
Ribbon Cutting and Official Opening on June 1, 2016
 
The WB&A Trail is a planned 9 mile paved recreational trail from Odenton to the Patuxent River on the abandoned Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis Railroad right of way. When complete, the project will link the South Shore Trail in Odenton with the Patuxent River and an existing rail trail in Prince George's County. In addition to the regional implications of the WB&A Trail, it is also a critical component of the East Coast Greenway and the American Discovery Trail.
 

WB&A Trail is open dawn to dusk.
