Bicycle Trails in Maryland Page 1

There are numerous paved and unpaved off–road shared use trails throughout Maryland. We have listed only a few. Trails are typically under a local jurisdiction, the Department of Natural Resources (state parks) or local recreation and parks agencies. The State Highway Administration does not maintain information or maps about local facilities.

Anacostia Tributary Trail System.

This is an eight foot wide paved system that is made up of several urban trails that provide miles of uninterrupted service along the tributaries of the Anacostia River. The facility extends from the Capital Beltway (I-495) south along a number of stream valleys, coming together at Blandensburg, just outside the Washington D.C. border. The continuous trail traverses a variety of natural environments including woodlands, open fields, and wetlands as well as urban neighborhoods. The trail is ADA accessible and serves to connect neighborhoods and adjacent parks. For more information, please contact the Prince George's County Department of Recreation and Parks at 301-699-2407.

Baltimore and Annapolis (B&A) Trail:

This 13.3 mile linear park extends from Boulter's Way in Arnold, north to Dorsey Road (MD 176) in Glen Burnie, basically paralleling the west side of MD 2. It was opened in 1990 as the second rail-trail in the state being constructed on the old Baltimore and Annapolis electric trolley line right-of-way that was abandoned in 1968. The paved trail is ADA accessible and a favorite spot for walkers, joggers, cyclists, in-line skaters, and equestrians. The trail stretches through natural wooded and wetland areas, commercial centers, and residential neighborhoods. For more information, please contact the B&A Trail headquarters at: 410-222-6244.

Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) Trail:

This was the first project in the country to be approved for funding as part of the Intermodal Service Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991. It is truly an example of multi-modalism. In a 10 mile long paved loop around the BWI Airport, it maintains connections to the BWI Airport, two light rail stations that service the Baltimore area, and a heavy rail that services the northeast corridor. An eastern spur makes a connection to the northern terminus of the B&A Trail. The trail is ADA accessible. For more information, please contact the B&A Trail headquarters at: 410-222-6244.
