Fast, smooth singletrack through the woods.

Overview [Suggest Changes]

Open dawn to dusk. Entrance fee is $3 for MD residences (honor system)
This area is a fun place for a beginner/intermediate ride.

The main loop consists of smooth, nicely flowing singletrack with plenty of banked turns. There is an inner loop trail that is geared toward the technical rider with a handful of interesting skinnies and jumps.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

It's a popular equestrian destination and horses (and their droppings) can be found on the trail. Please be aware and respect them as well as the occasional runner/walker.

Description [Suggest Changes]

Most trail intersections are marked, guiding you around the Perimeter Trail.

Around the 5 mile mark there's a fork in the trail to guide you to the Inner Loop. Stay to the right to ride this trail, where you'll find some additional technical moves to keep more advanced riders busy. There are a bunch of skinnies and jumps before the trail loops back around to meet up with the Perimeter loop again.

If you stay left at the first intersection with the Inner Loop, you can continue on the Perimeter Trail and skip the more difficult section.

By far the best place to bring my friends who are new to mountain biking and looking to get hooked. Feb 22, 2016

I rode the Perimeter Trail with my son, conditions were absolutely perfect! mid 60's, sunny and dry. This was our first time here and I thought the trail was awesome. smooth and varied. some hills but not bad at all. The total loop was just a smidgen over 10 miles. The smidgen is about .2 mi. I highly recommend this trail to anyone. If you are an expert you can go faster or do it clockwise . Mar 30, 2017
