BWI Trail

Reasonable Expectations, Please!

July, 2017 by eric.eckl

The BWI is a local amenity. It's a super sized fitness trail. Think of it that way and you'll be pleased. If you compare it to a "destination trail," you'll be disappointed.

Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

Best road bike trial I've been on...to date

July, 2017 by komalley1

This is my primary non-road trail. It's great to get away from cars on a 17 mile asphalt trail. Be on the lookout for loose gravel on the trail that can cause flats.

As others have said, there is limited shade. So, bring water. There are places to eat at both ends of the trial. The marina you bike past, +/- 20 min. from Chesapeake City (western end), now has a newly renovated restaurant with a great beer selection! It's almost like canal biking in Belgium. When the trial ends on the eastern side, keep going until you reach the cute little downtown of Delaware City.

Great job getting these trails connected.

WB&A Trail

New Rider

July, 2017 by mjmcg1952

At 65yrs old, I am rekindling my riding skills. Went in at Glenn Dale Splash Park and rode 5.5 miles up towards Bowie State. Great ride. Maintenance was trimming and mowing and blocked some parts but mostly easy to navigate around. Path is relatively flat with some long inclines and declines. I rode from 10-11 and had good shade in many parts of trail. Enjoyable ride. I'll go back.

Great Allegheny Passage

Just great!!

Can't say more been riding the YRT trail for years!!

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.

Carpendale Trail

Nice Side Trip

July, 2017 by jencromer

I did this trail as a little side trip off the C&O. I think its name is actually Knobley Tunnel Trail. Unmarked from the Maryland side, but it's right beside the remnants of a railroad trestle. My first tunnel on a bicycle - quite the experience! Incredibly humid!

Carl Henn Millennium Trail

A quick loop around Rockville

A small 10 mile loop around Rockville on an Urban trail.

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.

Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail

Fun Trail but...

July, 2017 by merlinsolis

This was our first trip to New Freedom, PA and our first ride on the Brown. The scenery is wonderful and the natural canopy was wonderful on this 90 degree day. I'm not sure why the trail guide has you go to a entry point without parking while there is plenty of parking at the train station less than a mile away. Plus you have the opportunity to see or ride the train which is a fun draw to the area. As for my wish list, I wish the surface was wider and more developed. The guide says crushed stone but it is mostly packed dirt with two tracks---one in each direction. Every now and then we had the typical crazies acting like they were in a race. With the uncertain surface and its narrow access, it was dangerous from time to time. There is no food along the trail except for ice cream bars at Monkton station and a few miles down trail from New Freedom where a homeowner has a little stand with snacks and wa Yer. Lastly, there is a tube float place in Monkton and 100s of people were walking 2 miles up the trail with the tubes. They spanned the trail and wouldn't move for cyclist. Scary and dangerous. While we saw deer, turtles, a snake and a crane, our overall enjoyment was somewhat dampened by the floaters and the lack of food on the trail.

Paint Branch Trail (Montgomery County)

A nice shaded trail- out and back closer to 5 miles total

July, 2017 by msdenys

I've done this trail twice now. Easy to find, take Jackson Road off of New Hampshire and you end up in the park. I parked across from the pool and the other time by the tennis courts. The trail starts at the end of Jackson Road, but I road around by the playground and around the lake a bit before starting the trail . You start out mostly downhill and get to a pretty steep hill about halfway through. There's one more hill till you get to Fairland. Then the way back is a bit easier with a few hills and the last bit of trail before you get back to Jackson is uphill .

I did Mapmyrun and the mileage from the trail and around the lake was closer to 5 miles, FYI.

What I like best is the shady 100% paved roads and the three historical markers you can stop and read. It tells you about the mills that used to be here. Not gonna say anymore, come out and read them yourself!

There are a few people on the trail on a weekend morning. Not sure what it's like after work hours during the week.

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!
