August Exploration Walk: The Underground Railroad Trail
Time & Location
About The Event
The Underground Railroad Experience Trail allows you to explore within your own community, while getting to experience the beauty behind its history. During your visit to the park you will be walking the trail of the enslaved who were once seeking freedom. As you go along your journey, consider how escaping slaves may have used bramble patches, hollow trees, and other natural features to guide them, as "slave catchers" patrolled the fields and woods, and be sure to take in all aspects of the experiences left behind by brave souls of the past.
Click here to access our suggested itinerary for your visit, complete with historical facts. The trail is approximately a 35-40 minute drive from downtown Baltimore, and we recommend allocating ~2 hours to complete the full itinerary of activities.
