The Rockburn Branch Park area is an excellent place to introduce people to mountain biking. Its rolling trails allow the novice to intermediate cyclist a chance to focus more on developing skills rather than trying to make it up the next climb. Don't let this fool you though. Rockburn is also a great place for the advanced cyclist to enjoy Howard County's great outdoors. And its proximity to Patapsco Valley State Park makes it a great addition to any ride. If you want to pack on the miles, you should definitely combine Rockburn's picturesque loop with the trails of the Avalon area. Trail Surface: Mostly doubletrack, some singletrack, and one small section of asphalt.

Described as easy, this trail is a challenge for any level given the abundance of exposed tree roots along parts of the trail. Not appropriate for introducing novices to mountain biking!
