This mostly shaded trail is asphalt and in great condition. Bikers are respected here and even in Severna Park where there are a number of moderately busy road intersections, cars will yield to bikers. There are also some walkers, but one can still bike here at good rates of speed. The maintenance of the trail is quite good, and it... More

I was looking for a good paved bike path and didn't realize this one ends right near our brewery. I began riding it in Severna Park and the way it meanders through the woods, and small little towns is great. It follows the old railroad tracks from Baltimore to Annapolis for transporting goods from the harbor. At the end in... More

This is a great place to ride your bike without too much worry about auto traffic. They do a great job maintaining the trail and keeping it safe.

Enjoyed the shade and green of the trail. Mornings were great even in June. Will go back for sure next time we visit. What a great work out area. So beautiful it would encourage me to walk longer and more often.

Have been biking this trail for years, It follows the old Baltimore & Annapolis railroad bed from near Annapolis all the way to BWI Airport. There are a lot of road crossings so be careful, and watch the kids....

Trail is a paved former railroad track. This is good for biking, inline skating, or walking. If walking on section from Marley Station Mall area toward Glen Burnie, walk in pairs as there have been instances of crime on this section of the trail.

The B&A Trail is one of the best trails in the area. Most of this trail is off road riding and is very nice on a wide paved trail, and there is a lot of shade over the trail for periods of time. Can get busy at times with bikes, runners and walkers, but that's what its for, so you're... More
