Easton Rail-Trail

love the trail!

June, 2024 by tpslucks

Very nice trail. I just discovered the western spur the other day and it’s very nice. Was curious that it’s not on the trail map though.

B&A Trail

the gold standard for anne arundel county trails

June, 2024 by josephpinkish

Long, mostly straight, subtle gentle hills, nice views, and a reasonably low amount of road crossings. My personal go-to for long runs.

B&A Trail

Nice trail -- And don't miss the very cool Ukraine mural!!

March, 2024 by chrisneilbelles

A nice solid rail trail. The southern 2/3 of the trail is mostly thru woods and suburbs. The northern 1/3 is in the Glen Burnie area and is more like an urban bike path. This section has a few more bumps and more busy street crossings. So it is all good, but just be ready for these two diffferent types of environments. From the northern end of the trail in Glen Burnie at Rt 176 there is a connector trail in good condition west to the BWI Loop Trail. For my ride, I started on the B&A in Annapolis and rode north and then did the BWI Loop. These two trails together --- plus the connector --- made for a very nice day ride. And Heads Up! At the Pasadena Road crossing, check out the wonderful, huge mural dedicated to the people of Ukraine! A very cool spot!

Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail

nice easy walk with good views.

January, 2024 by 737doc

Trail requires a short walk through a parking lot to reach the boardwalk trail head. TrailLink said parking was available in the neighboring neighborhoods of richfield station and bayview hills, this is incorrect. We couldn't find any parking in richfield station and bayview hills was marked with multiple private property no trespassing signs as well as painted reserved spots for residents, and is clearly a private community not set up for trail parking. We went on the towns website and found parking as described behind kellams field adjacent to the water park. The trail is well maintained and easy to walk as there is very little elevation change. It is a nice amenity but isn't a day hike or time consuming activity, nice for a quick easy walk with some nice views. There was one loose dog someone felt they didn't need to have leashed, and some fast moving bicycle traffic that was quite close on the boardwalk section. The bicycles may or may not warn you of their impending passing so be aware.. The water views are nice and offer some good photo ops for birds.

Bob Trail

Firm trail through the wood

October, 2023 by nphillips_tl

Firm fine gravel or dirt through the woods around the pond. A small section near the dam was paved. The south side is about 8 feet wide with gradual curves. The north side is about four feet wide and winds through the trees with a couple of sharp turns. We went counterclockwise out of the campground and found that to be downhill all the way around, or felt that way. Really no hills, just a slight up on the wider path for a short distance. We had two inch tires which were fine. One inch tires would probably be fine too. It was an enjoyable ride through the woods. Stop at the lovely church restored church

Henson Creek Trail

This is a well-paved, short trail. Nice for a quick outing.

WB&A Trail

WB&A from horsepen

September, 2023 by annie.quo

As said in several of the previous reviews, these are two segmented trails. The southern part of the segmented trail is very nice. Nicely paved trails with pretty views along the way. A few walkers, joggers, and bikers frequent this trail.

B&A Trail

Very pleasant ride

September, 2023 by shcavan_tl

Highly recommend this trail. It’s well kept, smooth service, partly sunny, partly shady.

Easton Rail-Trail

Pleasant ride on a hot afternoon

August, 2023 by fisher1_tl

We just got back from a ride. Parked at the north end of the trail, and rode to the southern end and back. Took a detour through the new John F. Ford park, which was a nice surprise. Except for a few tree root speed bumps and some hickory nuts, the paved trail was in very good condition. More than half is shaded in the afternoon. Passed a few pedestrians, but had the trail mostly to ourselves. Not a trail to go speed riding, as there are frequent gates at road crossings.

Indian Head Rail Trail

Just off Highway 301

August, 2023 by mackbrazelle

Flat long (13 miles) and smooth. Take a break from the traffic and go for a ride.

WB&A Trail

Segmented

July, 2023 by jeffwvandam

The trail is nicely paved with gradual elevation changes and goes through some nice nature areas and neighborhoods. When we have been on the trail it has been quiet and not usually very busy. Unfortunately it really isn't one trail because parts are segmented and closed off from each other and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to get from one part to the next. Sadly it has been like this for years.

South Shore Trail

Great paved trail!

July, 2023 by 330chrisbrown

Paved trail, mostly sun, houses back up to the trail. Along some power lines. Nice wildflowers. Saw a mama dear and twin fawns. Trail crosses several roads. Several runners and walkers. 1681 Millersville Rd, Millersville, MD 21108
