      Patapsco Valley State Park - The riding at Patapsco Valley is 3 Star fun. Its good quality riding with a little bit of tech and plenty of good flow. The hills are not steep so the climbs are not overly difficult and the descents are sustained and fun. The park is made up of mostly easy and moderate trails but has some great features throughout it.
