About the Stoney Run Trail 

The Stoney Run trail will be a 4-mile path for both bikes and pedestrians, stretching from Historic Elkridge to the BWI Trail.  It will be designed to be safe, comfortable and accessible for a wide range of people.

The Stoney Run trail will become another part of the Patapsco Regional Greenway and connect to existing multi-use trails.

The northern part of this trail will connect with the Patapsco Regional Greenway: Elkridge to Guinness Open Gate Brewery section at Main Street and Furnace Avenue. On the southern end, it will connect with the existing BWI Trail at Stoney Run Road. This will expand the network of regional paths for biking and walking.

In January, we reached out to the community about what they'd like to see in a trail.  Now, we've got four possible locations for where the trail will go and we'd like to know what you think.  Learn more  details in our story map and on the various tabs above.

About the Patapsco Regional Greenway 
In 2017, a plan for the Patapsco Regional Greenway (PRG) was approved by the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB). When complete, the PRG will be a 40-mile trail running through the Patapsco Valley from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor to Sykesville in Carroll County. The PRG will be used by bicyclists, walkers, runners and (in some places) wheelchair users and horse riders. Over 12 miles of the greenway have already been completed. 

This project is a collaboration involving the Baltimore Metropolitan Council, Anne Arundel County, Howard County,  the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and you!

We are seeking input from the community to help us choose where the trail will go.
