      Geographically situated in both the Coastal Plain and Piedmont, this Park is the only bi-county park owned by M-NCPPC.

      The vegetation and wildlife will vary from our other parks due to its unique location. Of the 322 acres on the Montgomery County side, only 39 acres are developed because the area is environmentally sensitive

      Fairland has around 9+ miles of fun flowy natural surface trail, and 1.5 miles of paved trail. To do it all as a loop it run you about 12 miles. Its mostly easy with some moderate work outs on the Silverwood Trail. There are several side features through out, with an interesting technical boardwalk on the Pine Loop Trail. Don’t miss the roller coaster line on the Viper Trail going south. And not but not least, a long awaited mountain bike skills park is slowly rising out of an old abandoned gravel pit.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
