Adopt These Trails!

Overview

This is a gem within the Baltimore-DC area. Patapsco has something to offer at all levels. Plenty of challenging rock gardens and climbs to work your legs. This ride includes some fun fast flowy sections as well.

Need to Know

If it has rained recently it's best to give it a day or two to dry before getting on it.

Description

As you come down from Landing road the trail is pretty easy, there is a stream crossing within the first mile that can be deep in the spring time. There are lots of ways to hook up the trails in the Avalon area so just have fun and explore.
