This route combines all of Bacon Ridge and Waterworks into one epic ride consisting mostly of singletrack, with a pavement connection between both trail systems. Plenty of climbing, especially in Waterworks, but nothing too technical. We will continue to add to the this route as more trail is built in Anne Arundel County.

Bring plenty of water as there are limited opportunities to fill up along the way. Park at the Northern Bacon Ridge trailhead or the Housley Road Waterworks trailhead.
