Mountain Biking Bacon Ridge Natural Area

#14 of 99 mountain bike trails in Maryland

Phase 2 was completed in late 2016 adding nearly 4 miles of new trail and a few features. Bacon Ridge is a multi-use linked loop traiil system. Trails are beginner-friendly with some punchy climbs and mostly smooth surfaces. Very few roots and rocks, but there are a few logs on the second phase. More details on Facebook or MORE-MTB website. Access and parking is available off Hawkins Road in Crownsville

Rider questions

Q: Hunting season starts Friday, any suggestions for riding these trails!
A: Hunting is allowed by permit in BRNA, so some hunters use the trails for access. The trails remain open during hunting seasons

Q: car camp at trailhead? seems like a no go after googlemaps... anywhere else to crash besides a nudist campground??
