So there is roughly about 10 miles of decent beginner style trails here. For a good trail map of this park, and Patapsco I always recommend people go to Openstreetmaps.org, more specifically for this park: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/39.2183/-76.7626&layers=C Rockburn is mostly double track, and the Southern side tends to be rooty and sandy. the Norther side has more single track, where some is mixed in with the Frisbee golfers, but others spots are not. There are some gravel roads, and paved areas also. The Nu Trail in a clockwise pattern is fast and flowy double track, but be on the look out for hikers. The more Northern/Western trails are single track, and while not too challenging to mix a some turns and roots in. Most of the trails in this park are good from new mountain bikers. The park is sort of known locally for that. You start in Rockburn, then eventually take the power line trail over into Patapsco, where the trails can get progressively harder. For a weekly night ride, our group starts at Rockburn Elementary and uses Rockburn as the warmup going into Patapsco.
Easier stuff in Patapsco, Schaefer, Rosaryville
