Indian Head Rail Trail Bike RideNovice Program

Charles County, MD
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
$7 members, $10 non-members
Level: 26.0 miles
Flat trail, suitable for beginners and above.

The Indian Head Rail Trail offers a unique natural outdoor experience. It is far removed from development and life's often chaotic pace. The trail was a generous gift through the Department of the Interior's Federal Lands to Parks Program. The 13-mile (26 miles round trip), paved trail traverses roughly halfway across Charles County, connecting the town of Indian Head to State Route 301 in White Plains. Along the trail, there are interpretive signs that highlight various natural habitat areas and wildlife species, giving visitors the opportunity to view beaver dams, bald eagles, wild turkey, deer, and herons.

Registration Deadline: Thursday, July 27, 2016
