Great day on the trail. Our first time. Attended church at Sherwood Episcopal Church @ 10 am and then went biking. Trail is well shaded, flat with beautiful scenery and there was a mixture of walkers, runners and bikers. Everyone polite and had good trail etiquette!

Beautiful rail trail! Highly recommend. Ashland entrance is in a residential area but there is a parking lot.

Also known as the North Central Railroad (NCR) trail, this trail is perfect for anyone, well maintained surface, relatively flat with amenities like benches, picnic tables and port-a-johns along the route. Frequented by joggers, dog walkers and bikers but normally not overly crowded even on nice weekends. Plenty of places to jump on-off trail allow you to customize your ride. Notable trial locals include the Sparks Bank Nature Center in Sparks, MD and the Monkton Railroad Station (Ranger Station) in Monkton - Both have Port-a-pots, water points, picnic tables and limited parking. Also available at Monkton are tubing rentals to float down the Big Gunpowder Falls. The trail is well shaded so even on a hot day, the temperatures are tolerable. If you are just getting into Trail riding, this would definitely be a great introduction.

My favorite is to hike the trail up then inflate some tubes and lazy river back down.
