The Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail follows 19.7 miles of the former the Northern Central Railway (NCR) in northern Baltimore County – from Ashland, Maryland north to the Maryland-Pennsylvania line, passing through historic communities including Ashland, Phoenix, Monkton, White Hall, Bentley Springs and Freeland. Hikers, joggers, bicyclists, horseback riders and pets on leashes are welcome. The Maryland Park Service does not rent horses, and only provides the trails as a means of recreation.​ The Torrey C. Brown Trail is ADA accessible. For additional accessible amenities in Maryland State Parks, visit the Accessibility For All section of the website.​ The restored 1898 Monkton Train Station is now a museum and gift shop and also houses a Park Ranger Station. It’s a great place to learn about the history of the Northern Central Railway​. Open: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday – Sunday, Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. Weekends only in September
