*Phase IV Update:

Imagine !

Crossing and re-crossing the Potomac River between Allegany County, MD and Morgan County, WV six times on high trestle bridges and going through three exciting tunnels* in between, all within 14 miles!

14 miles of spectacular river views, vistas of hardwood covered mountains exploding with color in the fall, rock formations, dramatic tunnels, transportation history and pristine wilderness all within a few hours drive from Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD and Pittsburgh, PA.

The Western Maryland Rail Trail Supporters (WMRTS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers. Our current goal is to build a broad coalition of support for the effort to extend the Western Maryland Rail Trail westward through the 14 miles, 6 bridges, 3 tunnels and 2 States of the Paw Paw bends of Maryland and West Virginia.

We need YOUR help!
