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

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.

I took my three children on the trail and it was great for us. Mostly flat. Away from main road although there are some intersections. Went through several neighborhoods--varied between scenic, wooded and open. We easily hopped off the trail to get ice cream. Everything very accessible.

This is a flat straight trail. You are not going to get lost. The best place to park is behind the Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie. The path South is much nicer than going North. If you want to see a video of the trail, I have one on my blog. http://smarttraveller2.blogspot.com/2014/03/bike-trails-baltimoreannapolisdc.html
