Avalon and Rockburn Professional Review and Guide
"Over the years the Avalon area of Patapsco Valley State Park has become a regional favorite for mountain biking in the Washington, DC region. And now, with the addition of the Rockburn Mountain Bike Skills Park located in the adjacent Rockburn Branch Regional Park, the area is truly an off-road cycling destination that will keep you coming back for more. This ride will take you through what I think are some of the best trails in Patapsco Valley State Park. The loop I’ve chosen here is demanding yet incredibly fun and rewarding. I’ve chosen to combine Patapsco with a small portion of Rockburn Branch Regional Park because of the presence of the new skills park, a popular area with a pump track where you’ll often find families enjoying hours of cycling fun. The area can also serve as a staging point for you and your group."
