Cross Island Trail

Relaxing ride

November, 2021 by davidisname

I parked at the East end of Long Point park. It was just off exit 43A (RT 50 West) and right next to a Royal Farms ,however, it has only 3 parking spots. There are many more parking spots at the West end of the park. Long Point Park is a small picturesque park where you wind through the trees. For the next 1-1.5 miles you parallel Rt 50 with views of the Chester river to the North and Prospect Bay to the South before crossing under Rt50 and continuing West. You then cross the Kent Narrows Bridge and cross back under Rt50 at Piney Narrows Road where there is also more parking. Traveling West you pass through small forests, marsh, and pass by several housing developments (about 3.5miles) before making a sharp right turn into Old Love Point Park. If you turn left you enter State St and should turnaround as I did. Old Love Point Park can get congested because you are passing through a sports complex of several ball fields, tennis courts, and soccer fields with Kent Island High School in view. You must cross several roads, so be wary of traffic especially Love Point Road, It’s about another mile to Terrapin Nature Park. In the park you can take several loops and you lose the asphalt. If you take the loop that parallels the Chesapeake (after about a mile) you come to a very small bridge with the beach and the Chesapeake Bay directly in front of you. Great view of the Chesapeake and Bay Bridge !! Here the trail is all sand and I had to dismount and walk SW along the beach for approximately 200 ft before the trail was hard packed again. I then continued my ride through the trees, passing through the Cross Island Trail Trailhead parking lot and looped back to where I entered Terrapin Nature Park. I then enjoyed the ride back to Long Point Park. The ride was about 15 miles and I savored a Krispy Kreme donut at the Royal Farms when finished.

B&A Trail

Closed at Arnold!!!

November, 2021 by redpair2_tl

We finally got to this trail today and it’s closed two miles in….really! Isn’t there a way to get this info to update the Trail Link??! This didn’t just happen either. It appears to have been here a while.

WB&A Trail

This trail is in my backyard and is one of the best trails in the region. The trail has an upward gradient going west which offers a great workout and is also completely paved.

Bob Trail

Nice Easy Ride

October, 2021 by beachbum25

Nice Ride through a State Park, I have been here on Many Weekday Afternoons after work & it has never been crowded. Main Trail Loops around Trap Pond & through the Campground, some Boardwalk, some Stone, Some narrower riding through the woods on Stone Dust. Plenty of other areas in the Park to ride as well. Easy to get 10 Miles in just cursing around the Park. Very Enjoyable

Cross Island Trail

Nice Peaceful Ride

October, 2021 by beachbum25

Really enjoy this Trail, have ridden it several times. Well laid out, enjoyable, plenty of great spots to eat on Kent Island. Always recommend it to Friends.

B&A Trail

Nice Trial, Pleasant Ride

October, 2021 by beachbum25

Nice Trail, fairly straight & flat, not a lot of elevation change. Some road crossings but they are all well laid out. Considering the Suburban Sprawl in the area it is a pretty peaceful ride, particularly as you go further south. Great Trail for Beginners, ridden it many times....one of the first Trails I ever rode.

WB&A Trail

Status of the Patuxent River Bridge

October, 2021 by jennyjohn8484

Here's a note I received on 10/5/2021 from the Trail Development Program Manager for the Prince Georges County Department of Parks and Recreation.

Dawn Thomas is the Anne Arundel (AA) County Recreation and Parks point person for the project.

PG Parks is a partner in the project.

The latest news from AA County is that a Pre-Bid meeting was held by the Dept. of Public Works (AAC).

Contractors will be preparing bids for construction in October.

Contractor selection will happen in Nov-Dec. timeframe, and then a contract will need to be signed by the appropriate parties.

Depending on weather and the contractor’s planned schedule for construction activities, work will start in early 2022.

A planned construction schedule won’t be available until early 2022. In general, it will take at least 12 months, however weather will play a huge role in determining the actual timeframe.

B&A Trail

Three Notch Trail

Inconsistency on the trail

September, 2021 by joneslesliem

Visited the trail today at the chancellors run end after 0.36 of a mile the paved ground disappeared at the end of the Walmart (which put me in the street) and picked back up at the McDonald’s with no warning to trail users on how to connect to the other end. This was very confusing and interfered with my timed run. There are no proper signs welcoming you to the trail.

Georgetown-Lewes Trail

Simply a beautiful and well maintained trail

September, 2021 by dfink4437

Recently relocated to the area and I couldn’t wait to explore the bike trails and learn a bit more about the area. This trail is magnificent!

Indian Head Rail Trail

Almost made it!

September, 2021 by wstewart003_tl

Woke up this morning and decided to find one of the trails closer to me that people rave about. So with the Indian Head Trail being only an hour away I decided to give it a try. Only 2 months back on a bike after 30 something years I can say this trail was worth the drive. Scenic, clean and very well taken care of.
