"Formerly known as the Northern Central Railway Trail, this 20-mile, crushed-stone, abandoned railroad bed can be hiked in sections. Mostly covered by tree canopy, the well-maintained trail paralleling the Gunpowder Falls River is dotted with scenic overlooks, benches, and picnic tables. You will often hear this rail trail referred to as the NCR or the Northern Central Railway Trail, as it was named prior to the dedication to Torrey C. Brown. Dr. Brown, the third secretary of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, had the vision for this multi-recreational trail, which was constructed in 1984. The Northern Central Railway was built in 1832 and operated until 1872." Read more
