Rosaryville State Park

Average Rating:    (3.71 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 17

It is an 8 mile loop with several connectors. Tight, twisty singletrack mixed in with fast doubletrack and short, sometimes steep, climbs. Built and maintained by M.O.R.E. The park is the highest point in PG County, and it has very decent elevation changes.

Summary:
Awesome trail. I think the entire loop is around 11-12 miles of great single track that winds through farm land and ravines/gully's. Not too technical but its pretty fast in parts. I consider myself an intermediate to advanced rider and I still have a blast when we shred here. Plus theres a Bojangles a couple miles away.

Recommended Route:
I'm coming from Annapolis so I take 50 to 301 and just take that all the way. About 45 minutes from Annapolis.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bojangles.

Summary:
This is a great trail for newcomers as well as experienced riders. Some great views. Has some large rollers which my son and I had to do twice because they were so much fun. Now that we know where they are the next time we will be sure to gain more speed upon entering them to try and get some air.
This is a trail we will visit again soon for sure.

Recommended Route:
Biked the trail counterclockwise. Most of the climbs were within the first couple miles. It's very rewarding the last 2 miles with a great views down as the elevation gets up to 1434 feet.

Summary:
Road this yesterday for the first time after a few rain showers in the area. I was pleasantly surprised. Trails are just like other reviews describe; fast, twisty, and smooth. Trail was great even after all the rain, some slop here and there, but for the most part had no problems. Not very technical but there are quite a few log obstacles to play around on. Great place if you're looking to get out for a quick ride. Other cars in the parking lot but I never ran into one person except a hiker. Other obstacles include endless piles of horse crap that are scattered all over the trail.

Recommended Route:
I rode it counter clockwise. Next time going to go clockwise which I think seemed to have more downhill although I could be wrong.

Summary:
This is a great trail and very well maintained. I am new to the area and this trail is between work and home for me, so it will become my regular trail. There are optional fun obstacles sprinkled throughout the trail and the occasional horse poo to dodge, but overall the trail is just fast and flowy. My only concern is running into opposite direction traffic since you can go either direction and there are some blind corners, but there are signs warning you at most danger spots.

Recommended Route:
I have ridden it both ways once and I preferred the clockwise route which requires you to cross the street from the parking lot to get to the trail head.
