Description

The Alberton Road Trail follows the remains of Alberton Road with some pavement remaining along the route. Breaks in pavement may be muddy or rocky, but the trail is generally uniform and easy to traverse. As the trail progresses it passes several historic foundation and remains, notably the remains of a church. At the end of this trail is a view of the Daniels Dam and a connection to the Patapsco Thru Trail.
