Fairland Park has nearly 8 miles of flowing and fast singletrack trailentirely built by volunteers. They are similar in style to Schaeffer Farms with a few fun sections and features thrown in, including a Roller coaster trail in the north east side.near the aquatic center ballfields, a technical boardwalk 2 to 1 foot wide, a couple of stream crossings, a few short bridges, and potential for a small skills area. Fairland is in both Montgomery and Prince George's Counties with about 2 plus miles of paved trail. The combined the park facilities include softball and soccer fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, pavilions, an indoor aquatic center and gym, an all year round ice rink--and curling rink, and the Gunpowder golf course.

Notes: To see rough map, go here: http://www.more-mtb.org/galleries/sh....php?i=992&c=9 The green locates the technical boardwalk area. Most of the Montgomery side of the park has blue blazing. When riding the trail if you find yourself at a road with a bridge, cross over bridge, but stay on same side of road--you'll see the trail on other side of bridge.
