Need to Know

To enter the trail from the Defense Highway Parking Lot, look for the stepping stones that cross the creek that flows from the dam spillway, about 100 feet down from the spillway. Please do not park in the Defense Highway Parking Lot, which is permit-only and reserved for permit holders using the fenced park area. Please park at the Housley Road trailhead and enter through the Housley Loop (Annapolis Waterworks Trail) and Missing Link (Annapolis Waterworks Trail).

Description

Very unique loop. The lower portion flows up and down hills on progressive benched singletrack with water views and exciting downhills. The upper loop follows the fence line of the Annapolis Solar Park, the largest solar park on a closed landfill in the United States. Expect amazing views of the topography below. Loop is best ridden counterclockwise.
