SENATOR CARDIN TO CELEBRATE “NATIONAL TRAILS DAY” BY DEDICATING GWYNNS FALLS TRAIL BIKE RACKS & UNVEILING NEW TRAIL AUDIO TOUR



On Saturday, June 5, U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) will join the Gwynns Falls Trail Council and representatives from Baltimore City Parks & Recreation to dedicate two bike racks and unveil a new Trail Audio Tour. In 2003, a picnic pavilion in Leakin Park was dedicated to Senator Cardin in honor of his 60th birthday and his work to create “greenways” for hiking and biking. The donations by family and friends were used to purchase the bike racks, which will be located at the Baltimore City Visitors Center, where the Gwynns Falls Trail, the Jones Falls Trail and the Harbor Promenade meet.

The Gwynns Falls Trail begins at the I-70 Park & Ride trailhead and generally follows the Gwynns Falls watershed to the Middle Branch and the Inner Harbor of the Patapsco River. The trail includes 30 miles of unique urban hiking/biking greenways linking neighborhoods and providing access to a scenic and historic greenway stream valley in Baltimore City.
