Mountain Biking Watts Branch Forest Preserve

  Add a review
#49 of 97 mountain bike trails in Maryland
#6865 in the world

This is a walking trail in the woods that can be biked upon -- not really that special, but might interest folks to see a trail that's right in their backyard. In a few spots you have to go through the brush to avoid fallen limbs. A long time ago, someone with a chainsaw must have maintained the trail, but not recently. I do not know the history of this trail. There are trails on either side of the creek, all the way up to Gude Drive.

Again, not a great trail, just something to check out if you live here.
