      MORE, TrailWerks Cyclery and Family Bike Shop present Bacon Ridge. Bacon Ridge and Waterworks make up the Anne Arundel County Regional Trail System. This rolling, flowy singletrack trail system includes the 3-line Bacon Ridge Bike Park off of Forney Rd at the north end of Bacon Ridge.

Multiple parking areas are available at 1822 Hawkins Rd, 1350 Bacon Ridge Rd and 1214 Severn Chapel Rd (Bike Park and northern entrance). Rip loops from each parking lot to find hidden jumps, log rides, drops, step-ups, step-downs and rollers all over the trail system No real rocks to speak of but plenty of roots with controlled-radius narrow singletrack! Out-sloped turns galore! The best trails are your local trails! JOIN MORE! SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BIKE SHOPS!
