Information: 301-699-2407; TTY 301-699-2544
The Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis (WB&A) Trail runs along the site of the former Washington, Baltimore and
Annapolis Railroad. From 1908 through 1935, state-of-the-art electric commuter trains ran along this route through Bowie
and Glenn Dale, carrying passengers between Washington, DC, and Baltimore.
The 5.6-mile trail from Route 450 in Glenn Dale, running northeasterly to the Patuxent River, includes five bridge
crossings, two tunnel crossings, and two at-grade intersections. Ancillary facilities include trail head parking and rest
areas with benches, bike racks, and landscaping. The 10-foot wide bituminous trail runs from Glenn Dale through Bowie,
and opened in November 2000. The trail will eventually be extended across the Patuxent River into Anne Arundel County.
