My Experience Walking in the Underground Railroad Trail in Sandy Spring, Maryland

In the spirit of Juneteenth, today, we visited the National Underground Railroad Trail in Sandy Spring, Maryland, where runaway slaves escaped to find freedom by walking 900 miles and more toward North ( in free states such as Pennsylvania and New York), and even Canada. I actually walked the underground railroad trail, and the experience was breathtaking, memorable, and very emotional for me. The trail (about 4.0 miles roundtrip), although located in the woods, goes around a corn field where the slaves would pass through after they crossed the river.

I recorded a 13 minute video as I walked in the “freedom” underground railroad trail, narrating my personal experience. Below, you will find some pictures I have taken.
