Trail Description
About this trail
3 loops combined to be a network. Longest loop is the orange at about 7 miles but it is really easy to combine all three loops. Trailhead is right off of the parking lot at the park office. Some parts are wet due to a swampy area, worse after a good rain. Not to technical, just some fast singletrack. ENJOY

Review: There are 3 major loops at Cedarville:

- Orange loop by visitor center parking
- Blue/White loops in the "middle"
- Green/Brown loop by the Cedarville pond.

Starting at the visitor center you are on the north end of the trail. Take a right onto the Orange trail, then take left turns for a CW loop. Take a left onto the Orange trail for a CCW loop.

Each loop has a little different character. The Orange loop is a combination of singletrack and short legs of jeep roads. The Blue and White trails arepretty much all single track with the Blue trail being more scenic and some nice climbs on the White trail. The Green and Brown trails around the pond at the south end are the less trafficked and therefore more tight singletrack with lots of leaves.

There is hunting on some of the forest so check the board at the visitor center for details.

From my numbers the outside trails are 13 miles with about 600 ft of climbing. Do a CCW and CW lap and you've got a solid 26 miles for the day.

Review: Took a risk and drove the hour from Pax River area. IT WAS SO WORTH IT! I'm a Dad with 2 active kids who LOVED the orange trail. My daughter, 9, rode her Specialized 'hybrid' street (with gears) and my son, 6, rode his single speed bike. My daughter made it all the way around no problem. My son, had to push it up some of the hills. But, parents, don't hesitate to take your confident biker kids out on this one. The 7 miles flew by and the kids were asking for more! A great family trail and hybrid (no shocks required) trail. We will totally be back and bring along friends too! It took us about 1.5 hours to complete the orange trail.

Review: This is the rail trail of mountain biking. If someone wants to get their feet wet with little intimidation, this is the place. Orange is the easiest IMO. Wide singletracks, very few obsticals, and very tame elevation. The blue trail is good for someone trying to push the envelope a little toward "intermediate" riding. There are more hills along this one and will require a bit more work. Nothing crazy, however. Good trails if you are local and need a workout without going up the road to rosaryville or want to get introduced to the sport.

Review: Went out today on the Brown Trail. Still wet from the recent snow. For the most part very clear but with some debris in trail but to be expected this early in season.

Review: There are now five different trails totaling about 19 miles. For the most part, these are all fast singletrack. There are bridges across 95% of wet spots/streams but a couple of the bridges go underwater after rain because of an industrious beaver down stream. Be prepared for roots on every one of the trails and a little sand. While there's nothing technical besides a few logs across the trails get ready to have fun!

Review: There are actually 5 different loops in Cedarville Forest for a total of about 19 miles: Orange, Blue, White, Green & Brown. Fun and fast. Not too chalenging(orange trail) but that's okay for a quick morning ride. Blue trail is a little rougher. The Green and Brown trails are short but little used and very enjoyable. Nothing technical here but lots of roots.

Review: I volunteer with the Friends of Cedarville and the bridge has been fixed and is actaully new. We have plans to lenghten the trails and add some new trails. The terrian doesnt have much for climbs and downhill segments.

Review: Had the chance to ride here yesterday morning with a friend of mine. As Joshua Tee said Brown/Green was closed, do to clean up. However, we where able to hit the Orange and some of the Blue good trials. Alot of pedal time not really a challenge. However, good for a warm up or a nice ride!!

Review: Went early in the morning and parked in the completely wrong spot by the archery range then rode the closed loop's Brown/Green. Didn't know they were closed, and they have easy ride potential. To do the Orange Trail you must turn RIGHT at the T in the road and park in the BBQ/Picnic area to the right which I missed for some reason (laughing now). Ended up making a wrong turn somewhere because I lost track of the Orange Trail but ended up back at my car?? I now have a map. Had the GoPro out!! Trail was peddle heavy, and a good cardio workout but nothing special. Will do this again though.

Review: Solitude, singletrack, somewhat easy, no dabs or dismounts. Can be wet after rain. Trail maps are OK.
