Birds, wildflowers, and trees for days. A great hike to do with friends or alone. 

Park in the big lot off of Dorsey Road to access the trailhead. Trail is accessible year-round and is dog-friendly. Can do the whole thing or make it into a shorter out-and-back.

Reviews

This trail is the perfect spot for a long run or bike ride. Whether you are training for an upcoming race, getting out to enjoy some nice weather, or perhaps even just want to beat the traffic between Annapolis and Baltimore, this trail is perfect. Local neighboring shops often put out water jugs, and the trail is used frequently without too much overcrowding.

The trail can be enjoyed for any distance you want to go, and can be accessed from numerous points. My favorite way to enjoy the trail is to pack a picnic and park at the Thomas A. Dixon Jr. Aircraft Observation Area and bike from there to the end of the trail and back. Round trip it’s a little over 50 miles. When you get back to the observation area, there is a nice open park with a playground and picnic area. It’s a great place to fly kites and watch the airplanes land.
