Description


Rosaryville is an excellent mountain biking and equestrian destination with a main perimeter trail 9+ miles in length. It consists of a lot of tight twisty singletrack with some short steep hills built and designed in cooperation with IMBA's trail building guru and former trail crew member Rich Edwards. There are beautiful overlooks, awesome flora and fauna, large open fields. The trails offer something for all levels, but tend toward moderate speed singletrack, with moderate climbs, and most of the trail is under the cool canopy of mature hardwoods. Some technical sections will require beginners to dismount, but intermediate riders should find most sections rideable and challenging. Trails are not crowded, but keep a close eye out for the occasional equestrian rider or hiker.
