The best trail I have actually gone one its not to long or short it’s perfect

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!

Downs Park Trail

nice morning ride

May, 2020 by vince.burrall

They have replaced slot of the trail this past winter. There are still some bumpy sections . But can’t beat the tranquility of the wood and the bay for a good ride. You can’t go flat out but you can get a good relaxing ride in. Go early it’s gets crowded at times

Enola Low Grade Trail

Quarryville West pass “Bridge”

May, 2020 by sandymo

We started our ride at the parking lot just before Quarryville. It’s the big one on Route 372, but there are no signs to identify it. Fortunately, you can see the trail if you look closely. Also, there doesn’t appear to be any direction signs at the park to show you which direction goes where. That said, if you turn right facing the trail and head that way you’ll be rewarded with a very nice trail. It goes by many beautiful farms. There are a number of trail accessed, but I don’t remember them all on this website so hopefully it will eventually be updated. We picked up a trail brochure at one of the access points and that was helpful. Anyway, we rode to the closed bridge. We took the on road bypass to repartee the trail. It’s not marked but it’s not a long distance but requires significant climbs so I wouldn’t recommend for casual cyclists or with kids as the road was well traveled with dump trucks and tractor trailers.This will be an even better trail once the bridge is repaired. Round trip of about28 miles. Great day for riding on the trail. trail.Thereplenty of benches for

Lancaster Junction Trail

Trail is fine, what's alongside it is not

May, 2020 by loloinnj

Upon the recommendation of friends, my husband and I walked this trail yesterday. It is as described, flat, well-maintained, quite wide, and with a lovely stream in several places.

However, what we did not expect was that alongside the trail were numerous meat farming operations nearly every quarter to half mile. Be prepared to walk past windowless enclosures with large fans running where the stench of animal waste is rampant. As if this wasn't sad enough, it was our enormous misfortune to pass by a hog farm as animals were being slaughtered and we could hear their cries. This was a particular nightmare for us as we are both vegetarians and animal rights activists. If we'd had any knowledge that these businesses were alongside the trail we would never have gone near it.

I understand that not all people feel the way we do and may not be bothered by any of this. However, I know there are a lot of like-minded people in this area and I could not in good conscience fail to review this trail so that others would not be subject to what we were subject to. It will be a long time, if ever, that I can get those sounds and images out of my mind.

Herring Run Trail

Oasis in the city

May, 2020 by drewdupuy

This is a pleasant escape from the city, largely running along the creek and through woods, but occasionally popping out and paralleling residential neighborhoods. There are also hiking paths off the trail.
I love that it's a full loop (no backtracking!). It's well-maintained and quite flat, so it would be appropriate for all abilities. The southeasternmost extension (behind brewery and post office) is not as well maintained.
The northwest end of the trail (off Harford Road) is about a block from Lake Montebello, which has bike lanes running around the lake (and, as of May 2020, the roads around the lake are temporarily closed to cars). So Herring Run + Lake Montebello forms a pleasant, no-backtracking, extended loop. Also, as of May 2020, Harford Road is under major reconstruction, so finding the entrance to the trail from the Lake Montebello end is a little tricky (there's a temporary path carved out that's quite rugged and may create accessibility issues for those with limited mobility).

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.

Springlawn Trail

beautiful easy walk by the creek

May, 2020 by amyreyrn

My dog enjoyed it. Lots of shade. Perfect for a sunny hot day

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.

Chickies Rock Overlook Trail

Short Trail with Beautiful Overlook

May, 2020 by melbel1066

This was a great surprise to find ! A short trail, but you can take a side trail that is more rugged, and the overlook of the Susquehanna River is spectacular !!

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

Great Trail for all

May, 2020 by sandymo

We rode 38 miles out and back from New Freedom to York. I’d highly recommend this trail. Excellently maintained and well packed. There are not a lot of crossings so the ride is very nice. Very picturesque with many farms and streams. This trail is best ridden with a hybrid or gravel tire but could probably be ridden on 700x28 in a pinch. Don’t miss this great trail.
