BIG POOL, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says portions of the Western Maryland Rail Trail will be closed for scheduled maintenance through March 27.

The agency says the closures began Monday. The work includes removing trees and limbs damaged by insects and recent ice storms.

As an alternate route, visitors may use the adjoining C&O Canal unpaved towpath, owned and managed by the National Park Service.

The rail-trail is a 22-mile, paved, hiking-and-biking path between Big Pool and Pearre (pah-RAY').
