Rockburn Branch Regional Park Professional Review and Guide

"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!
