A great biking, jogging or walking excursion !

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

Enjoyed the shade and green of the trail. Mornings were great even in June. Will go back for sure next time we visit. What a great work out area. So beautiful it would encourage me to walk longer and more often.

Have been biking this trail for years, It follows the old Baltimore & Annapolis railroad bed from near Annapolis all the way to BWI Airport. There are a lot of road crossings so be careful, and watch the kids....

Trail is a paved former railroad track. This is good for biking, inline skating, or walking. If walking on section from Marley Station Mall area toward Glen Burnie, walk in pairs as there have been instances of crime on this section of the trail.
