      This is a multi-use trail over diverse and unique terrain in Anne Arundel County on land owned by the City of Annapolis, all built and maintained by MORE volunteers. When fully constructed, the northern trailhead will be about 1 mile by road from the southern Bacon Ridge trailhead, allowing riders to combine both trail systems into an epic 30 mile plus adventure. The trail is located entirely outside of Waterworks Park, which is permit only.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill

      Access Info:
      Please park at the Housley Loop trailhead on Housley Road to access the trail. Do not park in the Defense Highway Parking Lot, which is reserved for permit holders using the fenced Waterworks Park.
