As the trail grows towards the Patuxent River State Park, those living
near the trail or users of the trail may raise concerns or ask
questions about the trail. Below are a list of potential questions
and their answers.
- Where is the trail going and when?
The route of the trail in county park land is determined by employees
of the Maryland National Capital Parks & Planning Commission. It
generally follows Seneca Creek. The
route is determined one section at a time (a section of trail is
usually a piece between two roads). Many factors go into determining
where the route will go, such as; topography, low muddy areas, side
streams, fragile areas, proximity to houses, safety, views,
existing trails, etc. It will probably take a few more years before
the trail is completed.
