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: 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: I've done this trail over the past several weekends. Trail is in good shape with some what I presume were wet spots filled in with gravel and sand (annoying). Also, at one point on the trail, a bridge has sunk into the creek so you can either risk it and do the 2 foot jump down onto the bridge, or walk the bike across. Good times, great for beginners to learn on.

Review: My wife and I went the day after an all day rain and the trails were in pretty good shape. There were a few puddles but that didn't ruin the ride. Overall, we both enjoyed the ride.

Review: Rode the orange, blue and white loops Sunday for a 14 mile tour. Encountered many equestrians, all friendly- one group even gave trail for me riding solo. Well maintained trails with good flow, mostly old service roads & not single-track. Horse pooh city... Nearby Rosaryville is a much better option.

Review: This is a nice little spin in the woods. No significant hills and nothing technical. Some of the singletrack flows nicely, but the area does retain water, so the mud bogs will usually be there.

Similar Trail: Rosaryville is a better option for all but the first-timer.

Review: Cedarville is the good bike ride that never makes you fall. Sweet for a joy ride, looking at scenery, or not looking so you can speed along in the easy sections. There are 5 official trails and several connecting dirt roads, all nicely marked. Buy a great map at the visitor's center for $3. You can piece together a whole afternoon's ride if you know the place. One warning: lots of roots that jolt you.

Similar Trail: Rosaryville, St Mary's River, and if you like something more technical, a little harder, try Fountainhead in VA.

Review: I rode the Orange Holly Trail. The trail was pretty dry. There were a few muddy spots. Some sections had plenty of roots to bounce around. On occasion I hit a few sandy spots that slowed my momentum a little. I was a good ride. Good for beginner and intermidate level riders. Also good is you want a flat singletrack trail with occassional hills. The trails are will marked with colored makers.

Review: I rode this trail yesterday 20 Mar. I was very happy to be out on singletrack again after a very wet winter. Orange/green and brown trails are in great shape with a few muddy spots. Blue trail was a little soft but more technically challenging then the others. Great ride. Felt good to push my limits off road again. Next up is Wakefield for me.

Review: I find this to be a great conditioning trail. Long so you don't have to go back over sections of the trail and there may be only one or two hills that need to ba walked. This trail is great.
