    Rode the blue trail and then completed two loops on the red trail to get some distance. The left branch of the red trail is a short, fun single track. It's not too technical. This ride is good for beginners to start to learn some MTB skills.

    Cheryl L reviewed rockburn to morning choice

    9 months ago

    Rockburn trail is a moderate scenic forest ride with a few sand traps, lots of roots and 4-6 inch logs to jump. Morning Choice is a hard ride with berms, stream crossings, tight switchbacks and constant 6-12 inch logs. Definitely a chance to work on skills.

    A nice single track trail that runs along the river as well as up into farm land and fields. It is not as scenic as some of the other Gunpowder trails. There used to be a single track that branched off past the picnic area and ran closer to the river. It has been closed due to safety concerns. In the first mile there is a water crossing that requires a dismount and there are some tight switchbacks, but otherwise it is not too difficult.

    Rode in on the blue trail and completed a few laps on the red trail. Quite a few dog walkers and runners, even a few mountain bikers. They've shored up a few eroded sections of the red trail with rock piles.

    This is a popular trail and gets lots of walkers and runners. They stick more to the branch trails that are identified as closed to mountain bikes. This trails has a lot of hills, some of which are steep, others rocky. Definitely test your uphill endurance and your comfort with downhill speed. A good workout.

    Cheryl L reviewed Little Gunpowder Northside Trail

    9 months ago

    This is a simple but very scenic trail along the Little Gunpowder. It is on the opposite bank of the white blazed trail, but it is still an approved trail with an official trailhead. It is a narrow single track trail that runs alongside the river. It has now been expanded to include a full loop that mirrors the quarry trail on the other side of the river. That portion of the trail begins where this one ends at Route 1. You can either turn around or take the loop. The loop has a lot of rocky sections with boulders that will require all but advanced riders to dismount. It runs up into the forest and has nice elevation changes.

    Road the trail early this morning as it starts to get busy by 9. Accessed it from the blue trail that starts at the L'Hirondelle club.While the blue trail had a few muddy spots, the red trail was clear. Made a simple loop by taking a left off the blue trail onto red and then took the left branch when red splits. That portion of the trail is much better for mountain biking. There are a few fun hills, lots of roots and some technical spots near the end. Return on the traditional red trail if you like hopping a lot of railroad ties, otherwise turn around and head back.

    Cheryl L reviewed Old Quarry and Little Gunpowder Loop

    9 months ago

    I am an intermediate rider who does not enjoy trails with lots of rock piles and boulders, particularly if they require you to dismount. The little gunpowder trail on the white blazed side of the water is quite rocky. From the entrance to the quarry trail branch point, there are a number of minor water crossings that are strictly rock piles. I attempted to take the quarry trail, but the elevation is too steep and rocky. Perhaps an advanced rider could tackle it, but not me. Returned to the main trail, which is a mostly nice ride with lots of roots and a few more rocky sections. I found the little gunpowder trail and loop on the far side of the water to be much more enjoyable.

    There is an unmarked but well maintained trail on the other side of the little gunpowder. The parking lot and trail head is less than a mile north of the quarry trail lot on the right side of the street. This trail is an official trail but it is basically unmarked. Fortunately it is well maintained and easy to follow. The section of the trail along the falls between Harford and Belair roads is easy. A beginner could ride it, but it has a few challenging narrow switchbacks. Once you hit Belair road, the trail becomes much more difficult, definitely not for beginners. There is quite a bit of elevation and the narrow trails has many boulders and rock piles. It goes deep into the forest and is a fun ride, if you don't mind having to dismount a few times.

    This is a very scenic ride with some rarely noticeable elevation. The trail is in good shape, mostly dual track with some areas that narrow, making it hard to pass. The mileage is well marked and accurate, making it easy to create a loop of any length. The trail has light traffic during weekdays, but can get very heavy on the weekends.

    This is the red trail loop. Went out early this morning to avoid the crowd. Came in from the light rail boardwalk and rode to the trail head at Falls Road and back. The trail is in pretty rough shape from the crossing of the light rail tracks to the split of the trail. Areas of deep mud with no options but to lift the bike or to skim the shrub line leading to some cuts/bruises. This makes for a less than pleasant ride. Once this area is cleared, the ride has some nice roots to jump and interesting scenery. For the most part there is enough space on the trail to avoid the roots if you aren't comfortable taking them on.
