Md. Underground Railroad Trail Opens For Season

SANDY SPRING, Md. (AP) — Visitors to a park in Maryland will be able to experience what it was like to travel the underground railroad.

Saturday marks the start of this year’s free guided hikes of the Underground Railroad Experience Trail at Woodlawn Manor Cultural Park in Sandy Spring. The free, two-mile hikes simulate the underground railroad experience.

The 90-minute hikes will be offered every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon ending Nov. 5.

Guided hikes of the trail have been taking place for at least five years.
