Fund Created to Support Middletown Valley Trails

FREDERICK, MD – Dec. 7, 2022: The Middletown Valley Trails Fund has been established with The Community Foundation of Frederick County and becomes one of its more than 770 component charitable funds.

According to Tod and Barry Salisbury, the Middletown Valley located in western Frederick County is a unique and beautiful place and has been their home for decades. Thus the Salisburys have created The Middletown Valley Trails Fund, which will provide grants for planning, purchasing land, and constructing trails in the Middletown Valley area.  One of the priorities of the fund is to connect towns with each other and with parks, including the C&O Canal, South Mountain, and Gambrill Park through a combination of multi-use trails. The Salisburys believe that the trails across and through the Valley will enable people of all generations and backgrounds to get outside and connect with nature and in doing so create healthier and happier communities.
