Ridge Trail is a 2.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Elkridge, MD that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
This is a great short trail loop if you are pressed for time. Even the kids wouldn’t get boarded. The Rockburn Loop (PURPLE) itself is a fairly flat well used trail. The access to Ridge Trail (ORANGE) connector (Water Bars) is a short walk up River Rd. from the parking lot at the playground. The Ridge Trail section is a bit of an uphill incline but is truly easy for all. Well marked. I recommend you taking the kids on this trail. Well maintained trail which places you on the top edge of the ridge. You will see deer in this section. I think they can read the NO HUNTING signs.
