The Falls Road Light Rail Stop is one of 33 stops on the Baltimore Light Rail and is the first stop in Baltimore County while traveling north from downtown Baltimore. The stop is located near Mt. Washington, and is often used by commuters as a back-up to Mt. Washington for parking when the lot at Mt. Washington is full. The station is adjacent to Lake Roland Park and can be viewed from certain parts of the park.

The stop is built near the former location of the Bare Hills station on the defunct Northern Central Railway.[1]
