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... More

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

My husband and I went for a jog here with our dog. We did the part of the trail that is near Severna Park. It was very nice. I enjoyed the scenery and random gardens scattered along the trail. A few times I felt like I was in another country, by the way the trees and bamboo made it feel... More

this trail can be crowed and crosses busy streets making for cautious cycling ...best used during off peak times...also safety can be an issue on the most northern parts of the trail beyond severna park

I love this trail for biking. Mostly wooded but does come in and out of some development. People are all there for the same reason to enjoy the outdoors. Accordingly they are very friendly. Come and experience nature

Plan to start your ride @ the Park & Ride several miles up the trail to avoid the long uphill road from the suggested Boulter's lot to the trail. We rode our loop from the P&R, south to the trail start, then back past our start to the end @ Glen Burnie & back to the Park & Ride lot... More

On a sunny Saturday afternoon there were plenty of people using the trail but not so many that you couldn't enjoy your ride. Rode about 10 miles of the trail that took you through residential areas as well as wooded areas. One section had a few hills but for the most part the trail is fairly flat. Unlike many other...
