45 Bikes & Hikes: BWI Trail
Glen Burnie, Md. It’s a Plane BWI Trail
Distance: 10.1-mile loop.
A surprisingly wooded and quiet start in the hardwood forest of Sawmill Creek Park may have riders thinking they’re nowhere near BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. Eventually the path leads through a grassy, somewhat hilly landscape with a view of the runways. You can stop and watch planes take off and land; keep an eye out for horses roaming in the fields of a stable adjacent to the trail. Make it longer: A 1.2-mile spur connects to the 13.3-mile Baltimore and Annapolis Trail for those inclined to add some miles. For details, see the parks website.
