Isaac Branch Greenway Trail

My local favorite

January, 2023 by fifty3tango

This is a great trail, well maintained, connects to other trails and full of wildlife. I have walked biked and run this trail for over ten years and it's never crowded. There is a small parking area on the southern end at the Rt 10 trail head with direct access to the trail. It's my go to place to walk my dogs or a bike ride without traffic.

B&A Trail

Half Marathon distance

January, 2023 by mackbrazelle

Awesome trial to run or bike. At 13 miles it is almost exactly a half marathon. Down and back should be a full Marathon. Mostly flat and smooth. Passes thru different neighborhoods with lots of options for stopping to eat or let the kids take a break and play.

B&A Trail


December, 2022 by dequanfrance

This is a great trail to ride. I frequent it often. Mostly flat with a few crossing from Arnold to Glen burnie. This also connects to the BWI trail which makes it a nice 41 mile loop.


Three Notch Trail

My new favorite trail

November, 2022 by bessetted43

Today husband and I started the 3 Notch Trail at the library in Charlotte Hall MD, on a perfect autumn day. The trail was everything we could want. Interesting scenery, well maintained asphalt trail, friendly fellow travelers. As "super seniors" (ages 75 & 81) we limited our trip to a 16 mile there and back again. Can't wait to finish that last segment, but winter approacheth, so next time, next year...

Indian Head Rail Trail

Exquisite Trail

October, 2022 by nwc39

My wife and I just discovered this wonderful trail. It’s one of the best bike trails we’ve biked. The payment is near perfect with no cracks or rough patches. The shoulders are well groomed and the small wood bridges are well maintained. Today’s ride treated us to the fall foliage. We plan to make frequent visits for the near 27 round trip ride and. Recommend it highly

Bob Trail

Nice Fall bike trail

October, 2022 by jamvjm

This was a nice ride to do in the fall. The route mostly went thru wooded areas. It was an easy mostly level ride over a gravel path that sometimes got narrow between the trees. It was 4.5 miles starting and ending at the nature center parking lot.

Indian Head Rail Trail

Excellent Trail

September, 2022 by johnthad

This is a very pretty trail. Recently repaved so quite smooth and exceptionally clean. It’s generally flat but with several long, gentle grades. A wonderful ride.

Marshyhope Hike and Bike Trail

Nice route but needs maintenance

September, 2022 by jimmiec_tl

Drove over from our home in Bridgeville, DE for a short, scenic ride this morning. The trail going upstream (north) from the Marina is paved. One short section crosses over to the east bank of the creek and returns via the E. Central Ave vehicular bridge. Markings or directional signs for the continuation of the path are lacking, but we figured it out.

A short way above the return to the west bank, we encounted a section of flooded path due to the high tide but we continued on to the loop at the northern end of the path.

Returning to the marina area, we took the path downstream (south) under the MD 318 bridge. The path here is poorly maintained crushed stone and seriously overgrown. The flooding along this stretch was even worse so we weren't able to continue on to the very end.

Still the path is a nice, short ride (or walk) that offers peaceful views of the creek. We were even afforded a close encounter with a Great Blue Heron we somehow snuck up on along one of the wooden sections south of Rte 318. Hopefully, the town can find some money to put into maintaining/improving the path in the near future.

WB&A Trail

Scenic and relaxing

July, 2022 by dnoss57

My wife and I love the wetlands stretch between Racetrack Rd. (at Horsepen Park) and the Patuxent River. But what is going on??? We went there yesterday and the trail was closed with a big fence. Seems like it will be closed for a while. My optimistic side hopes they are building a bridge to connect with the trail on the Anne Arundel side of the river. Does anyone know what they are doing?

413 Rail to Trail

413 Rail Trail

July, 2022 by dakota26

My husband and I rode this trail and loved it. It's a flat and easy enjoyable ride. Very nice and clean parking areas at both ends. The trail did have some pine cones and branches that could be cleared. It may be in future plans as they expand; a port o potty would be useful. Overall kudos to those responsible for this trail.

Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail

Nice enough

July, 2022 by c8

I wouldn't say it's worth the drive if you are more than an hour away, but if you happen to be in the vicinity with your bike, as I was, I'd say give it a whirl. It's just too short to get any more stars - leaves one wanting more. The boardwalk over the creek is a nice change of pace from the usual rail-trails thru the woods. I saw a large, dead, floating fish at the surface of the water, providing some excitement. Most of the trail is over the water, but the last part of the main trail is thru a canopy of trees, which was a relief from the heat on the day I biked it. It ends abrubtly over Fishing Creek. You can see the rail bed resume on the other side of the creek and it hurt that it wasn't developed! Oh, the possibilities.
The connector trail off to the right on the map provides a short incline near the end of it, where it ends at a housing development. Connector is half thru woods, half in the sun.
Riding along the marina was also a nice change from the usual, with real working Bay boats, as well as pleasure boats. Seeing the mix of touristy and reality was nice. Also, boat ogling was fun.
A trail that provides a fair amount of interest packed into a mile or so.

Indian Head Rail Trail

Outstanding Trail

June, 2022 by utpaduke

Mel n I rode our tandem back. Even though we are staying at Green Belt, we drove 30 miles to get there because we knew the parking place and we knew the trail from previous trips. We parked at Bensville Park and rode towards Indian Head. Trail is recently re-paved and as beautiful a ride as before. The Lily-pads were gorgeous. It was definitely worth the drive out. Now if we can get a Braves win!¿¿¿
