Trail Description
About this trail
There are several trails to ride, some long steep hills and not too technical. It's fairly well used and
there are some park areas around it, a frisbee golf course and an old farm house.

A great warm up, or quick before/after work ride.

Review: Awesome park overall, but more specifically, great place to learn to mountain bike. There are a variety of trails ranging from pavement to rooty windy inclines. No serious obstacles that could stop you and most stream crossing have bridges. No serious downhills or climbs but fun, fast, rolling terrain. Great place to pick up some confidence and skills. There is also a skills park which I haven't been to.

Review: It's relatively dry and Sandy in some spots. However there are some parts of the trail that are muddy which made things interesting. I ended up across a busy road into another trail which i can't remember what the name of it was. Anyway the further I got the more roots were on the trail so I decided to turn back. Started on the trail around 830am and got off it around 1036 am. Enjoyed it for the most part and will come back. Learned to lead with the rear tire a little and it made riding more fun.

Review: 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.

Similar Trail: Easier stuff in Patapsco, Schaefer, Rosaryville

Review: Rode both the skills park and the park trails. The skills park is great. Lots of jumps, berms and lines to try. Lots of parking right next to the park. Wasn't very crowded when I went. The trails behind the park are ok. Lots of other trail users and the trail itself its wider than normal single track.

Review: Cant say much about the trails behind the skills park but the skills park is awesome. Pump track makes for a great workout after a few dozen laps, jump lines are huge and even the druffle shuffle is a lot of fun. I ride these on a DH bike from time to time, so they definitely arent "BMX only". . .

Review: If you were on a bmx style bike this would be a nice place to go. The park is enjoyable even on a mountain bike however it is not what I was looking for. From a mountain biking perspective the trails had too much loose dirt and not enough obsticles. I felt bored. However if you are looking for trails to ride this would work for you.

Review: This track is great. The park is fun for hours for kids and adults. Been here for 4 hours already and my kids still don't want to leave. I am not much of a risk taker so I keep to the obstacles which are also challenging. Great fun

Review: The skills park is for BMX kids. The MTB triails in the park are nice. There are a LOT of washed out sections. There are also some seriously muddy sections that are just awful. I ended up in another trail network but eventually made my way back into the Rockburn section.

Review: Rockburn Branch Park is comprised of both the Rockburn Skills Park (http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/rockburn-skills-park.html) and Rockburn Branch Loop (http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/rockburn-branch-loop.html). The Rockburn Branch Loop actually connects the Rockburn Skills Park and Patapsco Valley State Park (once you cross Landin Rd to the Morning View Trail that is). The skills park is small but awesome. It is comprised of a pump track, an easy flow track with switchbacks, pump hills, and small jumps, a jump track with larger tabletop jumps, and a diamond back rock garden track. If the skills park gets to packed it almost wouldn't be worth the wait despite its fun-ness. The Rockburn Branch Loop isn't really much other than a connector trail to Patapsco ... nothing to really report there. The skills park is well worth your visit! Once you're done go ride some Patapsco single track!
