If you’re searching for a fun way to improve your joint health and sleep quality, consider mountain biking. When you’re ready to hit the trails, the best mountain biking paths near our Hanover, MD apartments include:

Black Hill Regional Park Trails 

Spanning over 13,000 acres, Black Hill Regional Park features an array of diverse habitats. Cyclists find more than 16 miles of hard surface trails. The paths meander through hickory and oak forests and feature spectacular water views. Historical markers are also found along the way, highlighting former mill sites and interpreting past gold mining history.

Seneca Creek Greenway Trail 

During the first 150 years of settlement, Seneca and other nearby creeks were the only sources of power in Montgomery County. Grist Mills had a booming business grinding wheat into the early 1900s, and the creek was also the heart of commerce for local farmers. Today, Seneca is known for the Greenway Trail. The path stretches 7.8 miles and features historical points of interest, including the former site of Watkins Mill. Riders find hills and steep sections, and the trail is marked with blue markers on the towering trees. 

Northern Central Railroad Trail 

Also known as the Torrey C. Brown Trail, the Northern Central Railroad Trail runs nearly 20 miles from Ashland Road to the Mason Dixon Line. Featuring a stone dust surface, it welcomes bikers, hikers, and horseback riders alike. For a longer adventure, the path continues an additional 20-plus miles into Pennsylvania. The rails are still intact along this section, and the trail ends in York.
