Welcome to Catonsville Rails to Trails!

Welcome to the new Catonsville Rails To Trails website.

Unfortunately, our website was hacked in March, 2021 and we are rebuilding our site. We appreciate your patience.


Vandals Damage Mural

CRTT needs your help to protect the mural from vandals. Our volunteers removed graffiti from this mural over 12 times this spring/summer. CRTT is planning to coat the mural with an ant-graffiti coating but we need your financial help. Read more…..


Multiple Trail Projects Slated for 2021

Catonsville Rails To Trails (CRTT) is a 501 (c)3 non-profit that promotes pedestrian/bike friendly initiatives in the Catonsville area. Our volunteers maintain 3 miles of woodland trail while developing new trails. Here’s a sampling of the current projects.

CRTT Connection Project – Mellor Ave.

Connecting the Mellor Ave. Trail to Bloomingdale Ave.

A boardwalk section of the Short Line Trail is currently under construction behind Catonsville Elementary School. CRTT has received $100,000 to continue this boardwalk to Bloomingdale Ave.

Cycling Pocket Park – CRTT Trailhead on Frederick Rd.

CRTT is planning a pocket park in this 35′ X 35′ area next to Bill’s Music House. CRTT has raised $4,000 from the Patapsco Heritage Greenway for this project but needs to secure $17,000 more. The park will have bike racks, benches and landscaping. A historic railroad crossbuck which was originally on the Short Line Railroad will be returned to this railroad park..

Spring 2021 Trail Clean Ups A Success!

CRTT did not hold clean up events in 2020 and our trails needed a good cleaning in 2021. Many thanks to the 221 volunteers who worked over 550 hours to get the trails in shape for spring and summer.

CRTT does not hold clean ups during the summer/fall months due to heavy vegetation containing poison ivy. Trail clean ups will resume in October, 2021. Watch for details!
