My sons and I ride the B&A trail all the time and we all find it to be excellent. It can get a bit crowded in spots on very nice days but generally speaking, there's plenty of room for everyone. Highly recommended! One of the best uses of taxpayer money that I've seen in a very long time. Go Ride!

This is such a great idea, and I would use it all the time. Except it is not safe. There are alot of pretty bad areas that it goes through, and I would not recommend going on this while you are alone. Or when it is not in total daylight hours. I'm sorry to say this, but I have to... More

This is such a beautiful way to spend an afternoon biking, or running or walking. The trail is paved, and has great signage. There are many places to enter or exit onto the trail, making this great ro short or long rides, walks or runs. As the seasons change it is like a new place to visit. This is great... More

This trail winds along the old Baltimore and Annapolis Railroad. It is a well-designed trail. It can be used for a brief, or a 20 mile tour.

I was recently introduced to road bikes by a small group of friends. They took me to the B&A Trail early August/2016 and since then I'm going to the place, alone, with my wife or with friends, pretty much every week. It's close to my place and accessible from many different points. It's connected to the Friendship Park at the... More

This mostly shaded trail is asphalt and in great condition. Bikers are respected here and even in Severna Park where there are a number of moderately busy road intersections, cars will yield to bikers. There are also some walkers, but one can still bike here at good rates of speed. The maintenance of the trail is quite good, and it... More

I was looking for a good paved bike path and didn't realize this one ends right near our brewery. I began riding it in Severna Park and the way it meanders through the woods, and small little towns is great. It follows the old railroad tracks from Baltimore to Annapolis for transporting goods from the harbor. At the end in... More
