Join us in a bike ride with Mother Nature. The Western Maryland Rail Trail is scenic, peaceful and serene paved trail located in the thin Maryland neck between Hancock and Fort Frederick. The trail begins about one mile west of historic Fort Frederick State Park in Washington County. The trail follows the former Western Maryland Railroad line through the town of Hancock, ending 10.5 miles west of Hancock at Pearre Station. We will begin our ride in Historic Hancock Maryland and travel west 10.5 miles to Pearre Station. The 2.1 mile Phase III extension of the trail from Tonoloway Ridge to Pearre Station was recently completed so it will be interesting to discover new territory.
You will have the option of returning via the C&O Canal or the Rail Trail. If you want to ride the C&O Canal, please bring a mountain bike or hybrid.
Registration Deadline: Friday, May 18, 2012
