Western Maryland Rail Trail

One of my favorites

February, 2018 by beckyaboardsvanteris

We love this trail and wouldn't mind riding it again someday. We had to travel to get to it so we stayed at a hotel in Hancock, MD so that we could ride the western half one day and the eastern half the next. I can't say I would recommend the America's Best Value Inn. We travel with a camper now, thank goodness. But the trail was just lovely and I recommend it.

We Loved It!

October, 2017 by hummelr

We got a wonderful work-out on this trail, but the hills were not overly difficult. we biked late afternoon/evening in October. We started on the Martinsburg end, which is definitely hillier that the east end. We stopped for coffee at the Black Dog on the way back. It was a perfect stopping place, with nice bathrooms.

Far from peaceful

September, 2017 by scott_music

From hundreds of cars to the overhead planes landing at a nearby airport, this trail was full of urban noise. The challenging hills, the asphalt trail and the geocaches were a plus but, for me, prefer a trail more serene.

Western Maryland Rail Trail

Just far enough from the cities!

September, 2017 by rmjonesjr

This wonderful trail is just far enough from the heavily populated Baltimore/Washington area that it is never crowded. Even on "busy" weekends you'll pass just a few other friendly folks who enjoy biking enough to make the trek to Hancock. For us "weird" recumbent trike riders there are a few teeth rattling tree roots pushing up the asphalt in places. Regular bikes with even modest suspension or fat tires will barely notice them. Enjoy this wonderful gem of a trail!

I have ridden this path several times. There are many hills and some come straight down to a stop to cross the road. After which, you then pedal straight up hill. However, the path is quite do-able. There are two treats for you on this ride - 1) a stop at Black Dog Coffee and at the Martinsburg end, you can cross the highway (carefully) to find the Berkeley County Human Society and visit with the pooches! Enjoy and cycle safe!

Western Maryland Rail Trail

wonderful path but a little noisy

September, 2017 by kent6

This is an excellent trail. Smooth pavement. Places to stop along the way for snacks or restaurants. Good scene scenery along the c&o canal. and can see the river in places. But the eastern end is next to highway 70 is is pretty noisy.

Winchester Green Circle

City & Sidewalk Riding

August, 2017 by lirpakooz

If you're okay with riding along side traffic, and stopping at red lights, then this "trail" might be for you. The local commuters don't appear to be very bike friendly. After hubby almost got hit by a car when we had the blinking right of way, and the next car almost clipped me, we turned around and left the "trail". Perhaps it is better done by foot. A lot of hills, not flat. Paved and concrete sidewalk. The park is nice, but cyclists are not permitted to ride around it. We chose to explore Shenandoah University by bike, and may returns to this path as walkers instead of cycling. Maybe you'd like this circle, but it is not for us. Happy Trails!

Linton Hall Road Trail

wide sidewalk

August, 2017 by jill.lepp

It is a wide sidewalk with plenty of room to pass people. It is smooth and very stroller friendly. The traffic along side it can be very busy and loud. There are a few larger hills.

Harpers Ferry Railroad Bridge

the bridge is superior to swimming across the river

July, 2017 by andrew.stinton

Also, you can see cool rocks and things from the bridge. The spiral staircase to get up to the bridge was not built with bicyclists in mind.

Western Maryland Rail Trail

Great trail for Road bikes

July, 2017 by ozsmiffy

This is a 22 mile smooth asphalt trail that is great for Road bikes, and gives a 44 mile roundtrip run. I managed over 500 miles on this trail during the month of June 2017 starting at Big Pond and riding the length of the trail each time. I averaged over 17 miles an hour so it is a great trail for just riding, it is pretty quiet especially during the week and is well shaded for summer use. Highly recommend and worth the drive to go an enjoy.

Western Maryland Rail Trail

Perfect for her!

June, 2017 by scott_music

My wife has had two knee replacements. We needed a place to ride that she could maneuver. So after donning her yellow recumbent trike, my problem now is keeping up with her. We also like the extras here. From the cement mill, C&O nearby to the cool cave... we love it!
