North Central Railroad Trail (Part 2)


NCR Trail. Between Cockeysville and Sparks, Maryland. Picture taken with a Canon Digital Rebel.

Okay, So I packed my Rails-to-Trails book, loaded up the bike and the Quick N EZ Bike Trailer and hit the NCR Trail. It was beautiful. The trail is crushed limestone but very smooth. It was easy to ride with any type of a bike. You could even push a stroller if you were so inclined. I am told the trail gets muddy when wet, but on the day I went there was no rain in sight. We left from the Asheland parking area and headed north. We quickly encountered the Gunpowder falls river and we were never too far from it after that. The best part about the trail is that you are basically biking through a tunnel of foliage. It is mostly shade, but there is enough sun breaking through the leaves to make it beautiful and interesting.
