2016 Jim Schmid bicycles Rail-Trail Hall of Fame 20-mile Torrey C. Brown Rail-Trail – MD

rail-trail hall of fame logoThe 28th member of the Rail-Trail Hall of FameTorrey C. Brown Rail Trail  was chosen along with the Heritage Rail Trail County Park.

I drove from Black Mtn, NC to Cockeysville, MD to bike the Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail on October 4, 2016 along with the Heritage Rail Trail County Park the next day. I spent a day on each trail. Pre-2007 the Trail was known as the Northern Central Railroad Trail (NCR) which opened in 1984. There are still  plenty of  NCR signs along the Trail. The Trail is  part of the Gunpowder Falls State Park. It is a natural surface trail that ends at the MD/PA state line where you pick up the Heritage Rail Trail. Really enjoyable bike ride in the woods of Maryland.
