Trail Description
About this trail
Expected to be complete sometime around Sept-Oct. There are several hiking trails where bikes are not allowed. Look at the map, the MTB trail is the purple loop. Head past the trail head and turn left on the gravel path and it will take you to the singletrack. Trail can be ridden in either direction. Very smooth and rolling. It is like a smaller version of Rosaryville.

Q: Does it close if it's too wet? -SkylarP

A: As far as I can tell, no, they don't close it. One thing to keep in mind, this track doesn't drain well. The trail will stay muddy for days after rainfall. Mix that with all the deep ruts and you can end up over your handlebars quick. I've done it twice now haha.

Review: As of April 29th, 2018, the trail is a bit muddy but there are no obstructions on the South Loop Trail, Yard Sale or Boss. It's supposed to be dry and warm for the next several days so I expect most of the muddy areas will dry out over the next couple of days. If you're not familiar with Meadowood it is beginner friendly. The South Loop Trail has a couple of challenging climbs along with some fast, flowy descents. I prefer riding counterclockwise, but frequently ride clockwise as well, sometimes incorporating Yard Sale and/or Boss in that direction. The Boss Trail provides enough challenging obstacles to test most intermediate riders. Yard sale is a well-executed pump track with fast banked turns, tabletops and other fun features.

Similar Trail: Rosaryville state park near Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

Review: NOT for beginners. This is a great little trail -- a loop about 2.5 miles long that surrounds some areas built up to do technical riding. But even the loop is beyond beginner level. A wide single track with lots of serious roots and rocks to navigate and some spots where the hillside drops off enough that you don't want to be falling off your bike. I'd say early to middle intermediate but if you're a beginner, steer clear.... literally. Stats: Trail averages 2-3 feet wide. Lots of rocks. Roots can be up to 4 inches. Not intense grade generally, but occasional steep up and downs. Narrowest bridge was about 1 foot wide.

Review: This is a pretty good get away that is close to the city. I had a pretty good time on vacation at this place. There is nothing too challenging unless you are pushing hard on the Boss section. We rode the boss section three times and had a great time.

Review: Can't believe this trail is sitting at 4 stars. It's a little mucky in a couple spots but all the great features here make this trail one of the best.

Review: I live nearby and aside from Fountainhead, this is the best trail around. Two main intermediate trails with banked turns & varied wooden features linked by a mixed-use loop.

Review: Rode on 1/27/17 and there were a few mud puddles. A tree was laying across the trail between the entrance Stinger and Yard Sale; it was closer to Yard Sale's entrance. Too big to ride over.
