Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

C & O canal in Williamsport is great

June, 2023 by relambjr

There’s a really nicely developed parking area with facilities and a full museum of the C & O canal in Williamsport, Just south of Hagerstown. The trail is fairly wide and well maintained . However, it is secluded and sparsely populated so if you’re not comfortable with that take note.

Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail

great ride

June, 2023 by dvecmd

Enjoyed the trip from Cockeysville to PA. Great place in PA to have an Italian lunch. The downhill run makes for a smooth return back. Nicely shaded, was never hot. Temps were in the low 80’s, not very humid today.

Enola Low Grade Trail

awesome trail

June, 2023 by ztk9qdnv2r

This trail was great. We did the entire thing up and back starting at the turkey point overlook. I would give this trail 5 stars if it wasn’t for the yellow gates towards Chester county that have no gaps next to them so you have to get off and on the bikes a couple times. We will definitely be riding this trail again.


Downs Park Trail

Short relaxing trail

June, 2023 by vaughn.cassidy44

This trail whines around the forest so you can’t go too fast but it’s a great shaded trail that’s completely paved for a leisure ride. I saw a lot of wildlife during my bike ride as well!

Kent Island South Trail

Nice trail

May, 2023 by electrksparky

This was my wife and I first time on this trail, we parked in the over flow parking lot I guess you don't have to pay to park in this lot where as the other lot it $2.50 hour. This is a 6 mile trail one way at the end is the Eastern Bay the Romancoke Pier, there is a restroom facility and soda machines at the end and places to sit and rest. Along the trail it is paved and one wooden bridge that you cross, there is also a golf course on this route. We rode to the end and then on our way back we rode down some of the side streets to see the homes, there were a few others riding bikes and some walking and jogging. over all a nice quick ride.

Cameron Station Linear Park

Quiet, short, and sweet!

May, 2023 by lioness0109

Quiet trail for walking and biking with lots of beautiful trees and birds. Runs parallel to the Cameron Station housing development and alongside Backlick Run. Partial shade and mostly flat with only slight elevation changes in a couple of spots. Short and sweet!

Enola Low Grade Trail

Midweek Marvel

May, 2023 by cindy.gerner.5

May 25th we rode 15 miles out and back from the Turkey Hill Preserve just off River Road. Crossing over both the Safe Harbor and Martic Trestles. Kudos to everyone who has made this trail what it is today. The condition of the trail is excellent. The trail is mostly flat both directions in the section we rode. There are plenty of wildlife especially birds including eagles and vultures. I highly recommend everyone to put this trail on their to do list.

Anacostia River Trail

Beautiful Trail

May, 2023 by gcavon4u

Nice trail with a variety of parks and rivers and bridges and lakes. Visiting the Aquatic Park and Gardens was a real treat. It's right off the trail. Weekends can be a bit crowded and the trail is narrow but it a must do. Markers guide you along the way, there's lots of separate intersecting trails.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Our Favirite

May, 2023 by gcavon4u

For scenic views and a step back in time this trail is a must. It's muddy, especially right after rain. We avoid our e-bike on this trail due to the mud, but it's mainly flat. Paw paw tunnel is a must see, but it's nothing out there along the way. Harpers Ferry is gorgeous and historic. Bring your Bug Guard you'll need it. And your swim tube.

Kent Island South Trail

Not a bad trail but not one you would want to ride every month

May, 2023 by carrollball99

This trail is quiet as far as other people are concerned. During 75% of the 6-mile trail you are riding within 10-15 yards of route 8, so there is noise from traffic. I rode this trail on a weekday, so I only saw 2-3 other bikes on the trail and 10 people walking or jogging. The first two miles of the trail are shady as you are riding through woods. There is a 2-mile section in the middle of the trail where there is no shade as you are riding past open fields. At the southern end there are flush restrooms at the Romancoke fishing pier. The are no places along the trail to get food or beverages, but these are available about 4 miles prior to arriving at the northern trailhead. There are park benches about every mile, and one picnic table, but again you are only yards off of the highway. The asphalt is in very good condition and the trail is relatively flat.

Cross Island Trail

Mellow, beautiful, and perfect for young riders.

May, 2023 by danadominguez75

My 5 yo enjoyed this trail immensely! Frequently changing scenery. Mellow hills and turns. This is the perfect trail for new riders needing to build some skills. Shaded parking if you’re lucky. Clean restrooms at the Terrapin trailhead.

Mount Vernon Trail

Too many tree roots making the trail very bumpy. My wheels are not true anymore...
