BWI Trail

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The BWI Trail is a 12.5 mile trail that encircles the BWI airport and connects hikers, bicyclists, walkers, and joggers to community resources, public transportation, and area attractions. Most of the trail has an asphalt surface, however, wooden boardwalks were used in environmentally sensitive areas to protect natural features. The trail has been built and maintained through a public/private cooperative effort that includes the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks, the Maryland Aviation Administration, the State Highway Administration, the BWI Airport Neighbors Committee, DNR, and the Mass Transit Administration.

The trail begins at the Linthicum light rail station, runs past the historic Benson-Hammond House, and continues along Aviation Boulevard to the Stewart Avenue Bridge. At the bridge, trail users have two options: continuing over the bridge for connection to the B&A Trail or the Cromwell light rail station; or, traveling west to the Thomas A. Dixon, Jr. aircraft observation area where there is a tot-lot, bike racks, and rest rooms. From the observation area, the trail crosses over airport property at the intersection of Rt. 176 and WB&A Road. The trail continues up the west side of Rt. 170 and completes the loop around the airport to the west and north. Connections to the BWI MARC / Amtrak rail station, the Maryland Department of Transportation headquarters, and other spur trails to the north can be made from this area.
