This is a great trail. I've taken it end to end via bike. You can manage to get to BWI Amtrak station or the airport via this trail. It doesn't quite run all of the way to downtown Annapolis, but the roads that lead to Annapolis allow for bike specific lanes. There are always plenty of serious bikers, joggers, runners,... More

This famous trail really lives up to the hype- over thirteen paved miles, with mile markers and some food stops along the way, it is delightful in warm weather and brisk in cold weather, and fun in all weather.

I'm not an avid biker, so am not much interested in anything hard core. This was just a pleasant ride, with a couple of small hills to work up a bit of a sweat (nothing hard at all). Started trail behind Marley Station Mall (which was a great place to park the car), and headed South for a little over... More

Perfect for running, bike, or walk. You can drive to a variety of parking lots. If you're dwntwn Annap go across the naval academy bridge and park at the end of the hill-lot is on the west side of 450. Trail is up the hill off of Bolter's Way. Portion south of the ranger station at Earliegh Heights is much... More

Nice, easy trail. Does get a little tight in some places with a lot of people but that is with any trail. Very good maintance of the trail. Went off trail and into Annapolis for lunch. Great day all around!

We were visiting Annapolis and decided to take our bikes and ride the B&A trail. It was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon with plenty of people using the B&A trail. The trail is 13+ miles long, 8ft. wide paved surface and takes you through residential areas as well as wooded areas. The trail is fairly flat, straight which connects Annapolis... More

The Baltimore Annapolis Trail is great for activity of all levels. Families with children in strollers walk and jog the trail as well as runners and cyclists in training. The trail spans 25 miles and can be very busy on a beautiful day to empty on a cool evening. At any time of day it has a variety of sun... More

Maybe it was just too hot on the day I biked this trail, but it was long. Went the entire distance of the trail and back starting in Annapolis. Not much to see but the backs of some homes and kazoo. The closer we got to BTI the happier I was knowing my husband was went me, otherwise I would... More

The B&A trail is a 14 mile long paved rail to trail that connects Annapolis MD to the trail that loops around the BWI airport. Some sections run through congested areas but there are long stretches with very few streets to cross. Lots of bicycles and a fair number of walkers and runners. Be sure to stop at the Black...

Nice place for a stroll or a bike ride, especially if you live in the Severna Park or Arnold area and just want to get out for a little outdoors exercise.
