This is a real fun flowy trail that can be ridden in both directions.
There are two "moderate'ish" climbs, that are either a little steep for a green trail, or have a lot of roots.
Over all the trail is pretty easy and good for anyone that feels comfortable on rolling and twisty singletrack.

From the back left of the parking lot, head on the trail and in about 60 feet, choose either left or right.
I hear most people go right, so when you hit the inner loop you can add that on in the right direction.

This is a shared use trail with lots of hikers, runners and equestrians, so don't be a dick and keep it under 100mph.
The trail isn't hard to follow, just keep on the well traveled route, however the trail markings leave a bit to be desired.

Parking costs $3 for MD residents and $4 for out of state. Unless you have some sort of state park pass, but I don't know if that's a thing.

Access Info

Follow signs to the Perimeter Trail head. The trail is at the back left of the lot.

 Honestly, this is a pretty good trail. It makes good use of the terrain, with some short but fun and flowy descents. The climbs are never gut busting, which is nice. It just seems to need some drainage improvements. However, I have only been on this trail once and it could have just been uncharacteristically wet.
