With reconstruction along Washington Boulevard between Monroe Street and Carroll Park Golf Course, the Gwynns Falls Trail has been detoured over the past few months. The trail is now open with a fresh new asphalt surface in front of Montgomery Park; no more need to cross Washington Blvd and back. Even as the trail is open, use caution when travelling the area. Along the edge of the trail on the southerly side of the railroad tracks. utility adjustments are being made. A manhole was stolen from an electrical vault leaving a ‘pothole’ in the trail. Construction crews have placed a barrel on top of the vault, but barrels tend to move frequently in Baltimore.
If you’re heading outbound (south along Washington Blvd), mind the slight drop-off around the inlet on the right side of the trail. There’s still plenty of space to safety navigate the area; even with on-coming traffic.
As you transition from the trail to the parking lot at the Carroll Park Golf Course, there’s a bollard being replaced. Watch for the exposed bolts in the center of the trail.
