Patapsco State Park – 14,000 acres and five developed recreational areas along 32 miles of the Patapsco River. For information about protecting and maintaining the trails in the Patapsco Valley, see the Patapsco Heritage Greenway, Inc. and the Friends of Patapsco Valley State Park, Ltd.

The Catonsville Heritage Trails – roughly 5.6 miles of disused trolley and streetcar lines, now being reclaimed for hiking and biking throughout Catonsville
