This report provides a comprehensive assessment of the three trails that are proposed to link communities and historic sites from Fort Howard and North Point State Park to Patterson Park in Baltimore City. It examines and grades the physical conditions of the existing bicycling and pedestrian infrastructure in order to locate challenging segments along the proposed trails and determine the best possible route for linking these historic sites. Given the results of the walking and bicycling assessments, along with additional analysis and stakeholder involvement, this report provides recommendations for future investment for three focus points located along the proposed trail route. The report identifies the improvements that can be made to enhance the attraction of these sites and create a lasting legacy of the Bicentennial Commemoration for Baltimore residents and visitors alike.
