I use the trail often - biking, running, dog walking. It's safe, easy to get to, and goes from BWI to Annapolis - and you can even get to Kinder Park on a small offshoot. The B&A marathon happens here!

The Trail goes through the woods, and beside roads. This busy trail suits walkers, and dog walkers, rollerbladers and bicycles. It goes from Manresa, through Severna Park, past the Marley Station and Harundale Malls, through Glen Burnie, past BWI airport and onward to Linthicum. It only has a few hills, and is mostly flat. If you bring your driver's license... More

If you start from the BWI parking lot it isn't a bad ride, but it isn't anything exceptional. Doesn't really go to Baltimore or to Annapolis without getting on extenders. More like the Glen Burnie to Severna Park Trail. But not bad.

B&A is a paved trail that connects BWI trail to Annapolis. It is relatively flat but can be challenging depending on winds. There are a number of places to stop for food ( mile 4.5 has yogurt, coffee shop, bike store), water (mile 7.5 has a ranger station in old train station stop with water fountain, restrooms). The southern terminus... More

Nice flat path that goes from the Navy Academy Bridge all the way up the the airport. Can be busy on the weekends and especially the bikers who like to ride fast. Nice during the morning or afternoon. Be careful around the Glen Burnie area...but south and north are ok.

We were looking for a place to do some hiking during our recent visit to Annapolis and stopped first at Jonas Green Park along the river. The ranger there told us that there was no hiking there but we should head up the road a couple miles to try the B&A trail. So we did! While I wouldn't say it's... More

This is a paved over railroad bed (now removed) that runs from just north of Annapolis to BWI airport in Linthicum, MD. It is a great place to ride a bike, jog or walk. There is parking at the southern terminus just south of Rt. 50 on Rt. 450. Also in Severna Park at the park and ride at Rt.... More

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
