This 3.5-mile long trail is a community asset. This first ever “Trolley Trail Day” will boost the trail’s profile, make more people aware of the many businesses accessible from the trail, and bring people together through our communities along the Trolley Trail.
Over 35 businesses will participate in Trolley Trail Day this year. By linking the downtowns and commercial areas of three Baltimore Avenue Corridor communities, the Trolley Trail serves as a convenient connection between our communities. It also connects into the larger region’s trail network, linking us with the District of Columbia and other jurisdictions. Through events like Trolley Trail Day, we can become a greater destination for local residents and out-of-town cyclists alike to explore our restaurants, breweries, and shops.
