LET’S GO FARTHER TOGETHER!
HFTTA is working to extend the Trolley Trail. We will start construction on the Library Loop this Spring and hope to have both sections completed by the Fall of 2021. The trail will be extended south to the Pond Property gate (next to the Water Treatment Plant). There will also be a loop that will connect to the nature trail at the Thurmont Library and to the sidewalk along the stub of Thurmont Blvd off Moser Rd. Going north, the trail will go through the Guardian Hose Company Carnival Grounds and stop at Boundary Ave. HFTTA is working on grants and funding to extend the trail further north in 2022. Please see the maps below!
Trails are more important now than ever!
They provide a great way to enjoy the outdoors on a safe and car-free linear path. Outdoor exercise helps reduce stress and anxiety. The Trolley Trail is being used more now than ever and it is the perfect time to extend the trail and provide an opportunity for others to enjoy its benefits.
we need your help!
The organization has received a grant from the Maryland Historical Area Authority for these extensions, which requires a cash match from our organization. HFTTA is also applying for grants for the next north extension, any grant we receive will require us to come up with matching funds for the grant. Your donation will be matched dollar-for dollar by these grants and will go towards the building of additional trail.
Your donation will help local families who use the trail for family time, enjoying the outdoors, and exercising which keeps our community happy and healthy! The expansion of the trail is also important for area businesses as it will draw people in to use the trail, explore our area, and patronize local stores and restaurants.
