Riding, Hiking and Building Bacon Ridge

I have hiked and biked Bacon Ridge many times… but have only just started to explore all the awesome trails there. This is a gem and an excellent place to explore, merge with nature, get some exercise or just relax. As mentioned in the video, this is not just a place to mountain bike and there are many walkers and joggers sharing the trails.

From Trailwerks:

TrailWerks is leading the charge on the first natural surface singletrack trail in Anne Arundel County! We’ve partnered with both MORE and Family Bike Shop to design and build a network of trails in Crownsville.

The Bacon Ridge Project has received support from Specialized Bicycles, Quality Bicycle Products, SC Logic, Scenic Rivers Land Trust, Family Veterinary Clinic and hundreds of volunteers. Without financial and volunteer support, trail construction at Bacon Ridge would not be possible.

  • Phase 1, 2.5 miles, began in August 2015 and is considered the pilot phase to verify that the soil conditions will be appropriate for trails.
  • Phase 2, 3.2 miles, was completed in December 2016 and extends north from Phase 1.
  • Phase 3 will connect the trail system to Farm Rd on the west side of the Crownsville Hospital complex and continue to move the trails into the northernmost sections of the property.

For more information, please email, call or stop by TrailWerks Cyclery! We do our best to keep maps up on the wall with current and future trail construction plans. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to MORE for the Bacon Ridge Project. Donations larger than $500 should be mailed to MORE or dropped at TrailWerks to save processing fees.
