Today, June 5 is National Trails Day. So it was appropriate to have the ribbon cutting for the Northwood Chesapeake Bay Trail today. This was the culmination of an effort that began about a year ago. Today, VIPs were on hand to make opening remarks. The public was invited to participate in either a 5K fun run or hike. Community groups like Friends of Sligo Creek and Neighbors of the Northwest Branch had information tables about their organizations. About 100 to 200 people participated in the event.
