I put this at a 3 only because I'm generous. There are certain spots that the trail crosses roads and so, there is some risk of getting hit. Usually people who drove vehicles are nice but you do get the occasional village idiot. I suggest is if you want to use this trail is either get there very early or after dark to avoid the crowds. This trail is gets dark quick so make sure to have a light set.

Not bad, gets somewhat boring after half an hour, a few nice places to stop for food.

This entirely paved trail runs on an old railroad bed. There are lots of roadies, and a few rollerbladers. It is flat and straight with minimal elevation gain. Connects with BWI loop at the northern end of the trail. BWI is paved too.

Great trail for the whole family. Try not to get run over by the roadies.

This is a great trail to ride if you want to introduce other riders to biking in general. I take people with mountain bikes here or the NCR for a first ride to get them acclimated to biking in general.
Definately not a mountain bike trail, but if it gets people out and riding, thats not a bad thing.

Easy, paved trail ideal for beginners. I've ridden it with my son several times. It is an ideal training trail for kids and allows them to get used to their bikes. The ranger station at mile six (from Annapolis) has bathrooms and water. The entire round trip from the BWI trail head to Annapolis is close to 32 miles.

Nice, flat paved trail. Not mountain biking. Good for family biking, jogging, or roller blading. I would from Observation park to the end (Annapolis). I was very disappointed how the trail just stopped before reaching Annapolis. Other riders that day seems as baffled as I, when they reached the end as well.

This isn't really a mtb trail. I don't recommend it in the least unless you want to take your small children on a nice safe ride. You might as well just ride your bike around the block instead of hitting this up.

Due to the saturated singletrack I rode this today to get on the bike and get some exercise, trail was dry with only 2 snowy and icy spots. Was a good ride for a paved trail. Better than not riding at all I guess, I am hoping for dryer and warmer weather soon so i can hit the offroad trails.

It should have been an easy ride if it wasn't for the snow and ice still on most of the trail. Talk about a workout for your legs. I need to revisit this trail in the summer and see how long it takes me then.
