If you’re staying near Baltimore Washington International (BWI), there’s a good paved off-road trail that totals 11 miles. Many sections are surprisingly peaceful despite the close proximity to airport runways. There are multiple sections to enjoy, most notably the young pine forest in Friendship Park (southern end of the trail) and Andover Park (north side of trail) where there’s an overlook of the runway. The southern end of the BWI trail also attaches to the B&A trail, which will goes as far Annapolis — about 20 miles!
STAY: If you want easy access to the BWI trail, stay in the hotels in the ‘BWI Business District’ north of the airport and east of I-195.
