Take a weekend hike on the Trolley Trail

   With this weekend giving us another nice Spring weekend we should put the memories of our brutal Winter behind us and take a hike along one of our rails to trails that is just over the Howard County line in Oella.

    Just around the corner from the Trolley Stop Restaurant in Oella is the Trolley Line Trail that follows the route of the old trolley line from Ellicott City to Catonsville.  This 1.1 mile trail was last in trolley service in 1955.  Now it provides a trail that passes some very nice scenery.

    One of the most interesting features of the trail is the place where the trail had to cut through a rock hill to keep the grade gradual enough for the trolleys.

     A nice feature of walking this trail is the selection of restaurants to have a breakfast or lunch after a walk.

   For a hearty breakfast try one of the omelettes at the Trolley Stop Restaurant.  It is almost enough for two people to share.

 Next Door is the Old Mill Bakery Cafe with a large selection of breakfast sandwiches. pastries, coffees and teas.

    Finally the Breadery is right along the trail and has a nice selection of pastries and other sweets.
