Ma & Pa Railroad
As we enter the new millennium, it is exciting to remember the past as well as to celebrate the future. Supporters of the Ma and Pa Railroad trail feel that the establishment of the trail does just that. Nature lovers and local hikers alike are enjoying all that the trail has to offer.
Every effort has been made to mkake the trail easily accessible to a new generation of travelers. The parking lots have been provided by the Jones Family of the Jones Junction Automotive Group. The Jones Family has always played a vital role in the Harford County community by supporting such events and
The Jones Family has something in common with the old Ma and Pa railroad; they too are in the business of meeting community transportation needs since 1917. Interestingly enough, a caboose, which at one time traveled these very tracks, is permanently on display at Jones Junction. Stop by with your family to view this fascinating reminder of our past, and while you're there, let the Jones Family meet your future transportation needs.
We hope that you will enjoy and respect this wonderful nature trail. We are honored to have been able to participate. Happy Trail!
Erected by The Jones Family and Jones Junction.
