B&A Trail Repair

Starting on or about April 16th, 2024, the B&A Trail will be closed to all access just south of the Jones Station Rd intersection each weekday. Emergency repairs are needed to a culvert underneath the trail. Trail users will not be able to get through the work zone and there is no work around. The repairs are expected to take 2-3 weeks to complete. The trail will be left safe and passable at the end of each workday and over the weekends.

B&A Trail is Open Dawn to Dusk
 

B&A Trail stretches from Boulters Way in Annapolis to Dorsey Road in Glen Burnie, Maryland. The Earleigh Heights Ranger Station (ca. 1889) is located in Severna Park with parking available on the premises. A gazebo, horticultural gardens and park benches are found at the Hatton-Regester Green property in Severna Park. 

The Earleigh Heights Rangers Station, once known as “Frost’s Store” was built in 1889 as a general store. The building style is an example of Second Empire-style commercial architecture and was popular throughout the country between 1850 and 1885. While formerly it served as a train station, store and post office, it now serves as the ranger station and railroad museum.
