Michael Castle Trail

Flooding Under Summit Bridge

May, 2017 by plyonsc

Gravel portion of trail dips beneath Summit Bridge (RT 301) and allows a fairly deep pool of tidal overflow from canal. Whether it was from tidal effect or recent rains, it was deep enough (~12")not to be able to ride thru--about 20 yards long and no way to circumvent. Didn't want to barefoot it, so turned back. Disappointed. Also, concur with other comments about strong winds--canal must generate intensification of surrounding winds--wasn't nearly as bad in parking lot.

May, 2017 by laretha

This Trail now links up with the Michael Castle Trail and you can now ride from Chesapeake City to Delaware City with just ONE road crossing. It is one great ride and is beautiful from one end to the other. My only negative is the powers to be in Maryland have not built a trail head or parking. On the Delaware end the State with the help of DelDot have built three trail heads with parking and restrooms.

Beautiful trail, Be careful of psedo-Tour De France training riders

April, 2017 by jerandvic

Absolutely beautiful trail. A real treasure, and many thanks to those who made this trail possible. Its a real historical and relaxing place for people to ride, and experience the rich history of this region in Pennsylvania.
The only draw back that I have seen, today especially is an arrogant, speed demon of a biker, worried more about cadence, heart beats per minute, and his so called exercise regimen, and in turn just about ran down numerous people. This should be addressed on the trail via, signs, or warnings that for speed training, etc, watch out for the elderly, small kids on bikes, babies in strollers. If your looking to do that kind of riding, the terrain, and elevation is not the place anyway.
All in all an enjoyable ride, one of the best, and plan on coming back, but the dude, in the green jersey, riding like he is trying to win a trophy, just about ruined it for me. If he caused a crash, or injured someone this trail would be in trouble for ages to come.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Colemanville to SafeHarbor

April, 2017 by awork3

My family and some other youth rode from Colmanville Church Rd to the SafeHarbor Dam - nearly 6 miles round trip. The trail was in good shape. Some of the recent stone patching has not packed down. This posed problems for some of our less experienced riders, but my eight year old did well through it. As you cross Green Hill Rd you get some nice elevated views of the Susquehanna. There was a port-a-potty on the trail; probably for the rock climbers we encountered. All in all a good trail. No shade, but we had a beautiful day.

Very crowded on weekends

April, 2017 by sastudillo777

For biking it is very hilly. There are a lot of people on the trails. It is hard to park since it is a very popular park. if you like a leisurely pace then this place is good for you. If you are a hardcore biker that wants to race, this is not the place for you.

Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

wheelchair friendly but

April, 2017 by cindywillett

The trail itself is nicely paved BUT the parking is about 1/4 mile away and crush and run, the travel between parking and trail is on road and not flat, there is no shade and no rest benches for the first half mile. These don't seem like a big deal till you are pushing a 250 lb patient in a wheelchair.

Michael Castle Trail

Our 1st time on the trail

April, 2017 by bunny9244

Yesterday was the 1st time we rode the trail. We parked in Middletown and rode to Chesapeake City. There's a short section that is not paved but, not a problem. There was a couple of steep hills which we walked the bikes up. Today we parked at St. Georges Bridge and rode to Delaware City. Easy ride but, the wind coming back was brutal. Made it quite difficult. In spite of the wind, we really enjoyed our 2 day ride along the C & D Canal. Looking forward to riding it again.

BWI Trail

Mixed bag

April, 2017 by gyhtyuhty

Great advice from earlier post to travel counter-clockwise around the airport - the hills are much more manageable. Though a mostly pleasant 12-mile ride on a smooth, paved trail, approximately half of the ride is alongside very busy multi-lane roads. Also, the map provided on this site shows a traffic circle of sorts along the west side at Stoney Run Road. It does not exist; we traveled Stoney and Old Stoney end-to-end and found no such area. Finally, the trail would benefit from a regular litter patrol, as some people are pigs.

Patuxent River crossing?

April, 2017 by pubberichten

Reading all the comments, it's clear that the whole bridge issue is going on for many years now and that there's no will to make a change any time soon. Which is a huge shame by the way!
Does anybody know an alternative route, or even a crossing, doable with a mountain bike? I'd love to commute (Odenton - FedEx Field) using my bike, but I'd rather not get killed on MD 3 or on other crazy roads.

Red Lion Mile

Not sure why it's listed.

April, 2017 by dlwertz57

This trail isn't marked and about a quarter of a mile into the trail it was blocked and the properties are posted I was hoping to get to the old trestle to see it's ruins but it's not accessible. If it wouldn't have been listed on TrailLink I wouldn't of known it was the trail at all.
