This bike trail goes from BWI to Annapolis. It's a wonderful bike trail. Paved, lots of places to stop, benches along the way. It could be a little wider but it's not bad. Love this bike trail. Some of it is wooded so not sure about riding it by myself at certain times but when it's nice out during the... More

I enjoy biking this trail. There are plenty of places to stop to eat, drink & refresh. There are many things to see as well - just keep your eyes open! Take it all the way to Annapolis & make a day of it!

The B&A trail is well maintained and equipped with mile markers, benches and even a couple of drinking fountains and bathrooms (~mile marker 7). Great place to get some exercise!

This was a great rail trail, level, paved with great scenery. Recommend starting early in the morning, less crowded. Two great places to stop for a water and or ice cream. All who shared space were respectful with notification in advance of passing you. We went 27.43 miles round trip and this wasn't all of it. Didn't make it to... More

A beautiful rail-to-trail conversion paved path stretching 13 miles through scenic wooded areas. Several bridges of various types add to the charm. Ranger's Station provides helpful information and clean restrooms. Great in all seasons. A few intersections to be alert to. Bike shop in Severna Park available directly off trail for emergency needs, as well as many fine choices for... More

Walked parts of the trail weekly. Very peaceful. Trail is very well maintained. Safe parking at key points of the trail. Walked various parts of the trail from Robinson ave in severna park to the glen burnie court house.

I use the trail often - biking, running, dog walking. It's safe, easy to get to, and goes from BWI to Annapolis - and you can even get to Kinder Park on a small offshoot. The B&A marathon happens here!

The Trail goes through the woods, and beside roads. This busy trail suits walkers, and dog walkers, rollerbladers and bicycles. It goes from Manresa, through Severna Park, past the Marley Station and Harundale Malls, through Glen Burnie, past BWI airport and onward to Linthicum. It only has a few hills, and is mostly flat. If you bring your driver's license... More

If you start from the BWI parking lot it isn't a bad ride, but it isn't anything exceptional. Doesn't really go to Baltimore or to Annapolis without getting on extenders. More like the Glen Burnie to Severna Park Trail. But not bad.

B&A is a paved trail that connects BWI trail to Annapolis. It is relatively flat but can be challenging depending on winds. There are a number of places to stop for food ( mile 4.5 has yogurt, coffee shop, bike store), water (mile 7.5 has a ranger station in old train station stop with water fountain, restrooms). The southern terminus... More
