Baltimore and Annapolis Trail

Second time’s the charm

May, 2020 by cjeanine82

My husband and I walked this trail yesterday. We attempted to go to the southern parking area near Annapolis and start at the end. We do not recommend this for walkers. The southern parking lot is about a mile away from the southern trail head, and you have to walk along a busy road in a bike lane. We felt very uncomfortable with this. Perfect for bikers, again, not for walkers. We were able to find a parking lot near a midpoint of the trail in Severn. Starting here is recommended. There are two lots with immediate access to the trail and Porta potties as well. The trail itself is very pretty with a wide level asphalt surface. Wide enough for some walkers and bikers. We definitely saw predominantly bikers on our journey, only a handful of walkers and joggers. And one rollerblader!

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Not What It Used To Be

May, 2020 by briantbaumgardner

I have been enjoying the C&O Canal towpath since I was a boy -- but I went for a bike ride yesterday (May 10, 2020) at the Monocacy Aqueduct and the path is now paved (I assume it's considered crushed stone). Yep, it's now "new and improved" -- not. One problem is that the trail now has a lower shoulder than the paved road. If you happen to get too close to the edge or pull off, you've got a bit of a dropoff which could be problematic. Another problem is that some of my fellow bicyclers seem to love the new surface as they now go flying even faster than before. Hiking on the paved trail is certainly not as nice as the previous dirt path. The feeling of getting away from it all has diminished and the trail has lost some of its charm. It no longer appears to be a path in the woods from a bygone era, but simply another bike trail. Pedestrians beware.

Magruder Branch Trail

popular trail...

May, 2020 by david156

Even on a COLD WINDY May day, there were lots of walkers, joggers, and some bikers. Steep on either end of the trail and I’m guessing 6-8’ wide so 2 bikers can safely but SLOWLY pass. Lots of smooth, elevated trail & bridges (lots of warning signs “Slippery When Wet”) Would be very nice in heat of summer since it’s shaded the entire route & alongside the stream. Trail is in the floodplain so would not be advisable when streams are up.

South Shore Trail

Nice little trail

May, 2020 by jeffwvu1

This section is complete. Paved and spacious. Not much elevation but good for a jog with a stroller from one end to the other and back. What’s not to love? Parking ok Crownsville is limited (two larking spots, 3 including a handicap spot) but the Rt3 lot near end of Millersville Rd has plenty of parking.

Rocks Roots and Ruts (July 2018)

April, 2020 by jkn8705

After reaching the eastern terminus of the Great Allegheny Passage, I picked up the C&O Towpath in Cumberland, MD back in 2018 (perhaps the Towpath has improved since then). Unfortunately, rainy conditions really seem to impact this path/trail more than other trails. Its gravel surface (which rides nothing like the crushed limestone of the GAP) was a mess back in July 2018. Rain aside, this trail is really, really bumpy which really had a negative impact on progress (I usually tour around 15mph, and struggled to make 9mph on this path). As soon as I had the opportunity, I departed this path for the Western Maryland Rail Trail without any regrets. In my touring experiences, the conditions on the C&O Towpath were some of the worst that I've ever encountered. It's truly a shame: this path would be so much more enjoyable if it were better maintained.

Indian Head Rail Trail

Nice Flat Ride

April, 2020 by lindsay.hannick_tl

Have done this a few times. I enjoy having this much mileage available without having to interact with cars on the road. And nice access to additional trails connect to this. Well maintained and a great trail for base miles if you don’t want elevation gains.

Baltimore and Annapolis Trail

So much fun

April, 2020 by compelledworship

My wife and I just got “real” bikes and for Us it was great. Well kept trails and paved all the way. If in area it’s a must.

Rocky Run Stream Valley Trail

Nice quiet walk

April, 2020 by rpmuskett

Nearby but feels far away. Flat for kids and pets.

Gwynns Falls Trail

Diverse trail w/ natural escape from the city

April, 2020 by drewdupuy

I've ridden the south/southeastern section (from Downtown/Federal Hill to Middle Branch Park/Cherry Hill) and the northwestern section (Leakin Park/Gwynns Falls Park, from both ends at I-70/Franklintown and Dickeyville to Leon Day Park/Trailhead 4 on the edge of the park and Baltimore City.
NW section (Leakin/Gwynns Falls Park): this is a gorgeous park, a natural oasis in the city (very wooded and nature-y). There are lots of side paths to explore (including hiking trails) and other amenities. The section to the SW (between Trailheads 3 & 4) is unpaved and there are some trees blocking the trail, but it's easy to lift your bike over them.
Tip: as someone who doesn't like backtracking, you can create a loop between Trailhead 1 (I-70) and the Dickeyville endpoint in the north by going off trail. Some of Forest Park Ave is fast/dangerous and lacks a sidewalk, but you can ride on grass for 2 blocks. This puts you into the charming and idyllic, Mayberry-like historic village of Dickeyville (an 1700s mill town) before re-entering the park.
SE section: There's a small wooded oasis behind the casino/south of football stadium. The portion through Westport is on-road and industrial. The Middle Branch Park section is flat, through a basic city park, but is along the water with pretty good views.

Magruder Branch Trail

Scenic route

April, 2020 by luminousstork

What a wonderful paved trail with numerous wooden bridges!!! A real delight to bike! Not to mention various creeks filled with tadpoles!

Cub Run Stream Valley Trail

pleasant

April, 2020 by jiangxiangqun

The trail is pleasant, we went there last Saturday. You could enjoy Virginia Blue Bell, a special blue flower of the area. The stream is beautiful. You have choices of long or short routes. Recommend it!
