A new study will evaluate connecting the Jones Falls Trail in Baltimore City with the Northern Central Railroad Trail in Baltimore County, creating a protected route for hikers and bikers from the Inner Harbor about 50 miles up into Pennsylvania. At a meeting Monday, the Baltimore County Council voted unanimously to help fund the study, which represents a meaningful step forward for the idea. The connection has long been discussed by cycling advocates, but still has a long way to go. After the study, a final design would need to be completed and funding obtained for its construction.
Linking Jones Falls, NCR trails would create a protected bike path from the Inner Harbor into Pennsylvania. A study is proposed.
