Long, windy undulating single track mixed in with horse trails and random corn filed crossings. Scenic, moderatly challenging, lightly technical, but mostly a ton of fun. We started at mile marker 10, rode around to 22 then cut back across church rode.
I suggest cutting out anything west of Church road, there is a huge un-ridable climb, followed by a great descent and then three miles of mundane flat singletrack along the road back to the church road bridge.
No water anywhere but at the boat landing and HQ main entrance. Bring lots of water or plan to stop half way at the bathrooms. Apparently even this water is not for drinking, perhaps do a bottle drop by car?
Anyway great spot! Try White Clay, Patapsco, Fair Hill....
You could not ask for a better free public trail. Blue Marsh has abundant parking, and access. The trail itself is 30 miles of single-track heaven. You have steep downhills, and climbs. The trail is well maintaned, and there is a bulliton board at every road crossing with maps you can take. If you. love single-track you will love this trail.
