We really enjoyed this trail. Parking lot is not huge so get there early. Fairly flat and covered by the trees in some areas.
Biked from Baltimore to Annapolis on the trail. Very safe and nicely shaded. Not much hills so an easy ride. Wish it went all the way to D.C. We did about a 20 mile ride each way and spent the night in Annapolis. Lovely trip.
Crime can be a concern so exercise due caution especially if alone or at night in isolated areas. Paved blacktop with a few interruptions for cross streets. Connects to the BWI loop. Relatively flat and sheltered from wind. Quick access to off trail shops etc.

Good bike trail, well signed, reasonable places to stop for food and water, other services. There are a number of streets to cross in the early going from Annapolis but not bad.
I ride B&A trail almost every month. Beautiful views, not very crowded, well kept asphalt lane. In summer time it is well shaded and not very hot. The trail goes through the densely populated suburbia, but it is well hidden by dense woods. There are drinking water fountains and one café directly on the trail. By the end of the... More
When the B&A Trail opened up there were great expectations. A relatively isolated public trail in a densely populated suburban area. It has lived up to it's projections and more. Go out any day and especially on the weekends and you will see walkers, joggers, inline skaters, bikers and even horses on occasion. The only downside to it's success is... More
