MORE, Howard County Recreation and Parks, and the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) have created a private-public partnership that resulted in a skills area at Rockburn Branch Park.

Rockburn Branch Park consists of 450 acres located in Elkridge, Maryland with two entrances: one by Rockburn Elementary School off of Montgomery Road and the other on Landing Road across the street from Patapsco Valley State Park. The multi-use trail system has been built with mountain bikers and trail runners in mind. The Rockburn Branch Skills Park consists of multiple trails of varying complexity.

Howard County dedicated the land in Rockburn Branch Park for the project; IMBA flew in world-class trail engineers and designers; and MORE raised the funding, managed the project, and provided hundreds of hours of volunteer effort. The final product was donated to the park system on June 2, 2012 and is free for the public to use. The park includes a pump track and three downhill lines: one for beginners, one for intermediate riders, and one for more advanced riders. This is a family-first facility where Howard County kids and adults can hone their bicycle riding skills.
