First time rider on this trail. Being a novice, I found the track to be a little challenging. There are a number of trees that have fallen making it difficult to cross without dismounting. I found that I had to dodge horse "poo" since the trail is also frequented by those on horseback. As with prior posts, the post signs are very much out of date and some are missing. I found some good "mudding" to ride through. Overall, not a bad trail. Will visit again.

Rode this trail for the first time today. As described the technical difficulty is low, but I found it quite fun. The terrain is very smooth, which allows you to keeps the pedals turning and really rip through the forest. The trail markers are not up to date. There is a recently developed orange blaze trail that dumps you off in the middle of nowhere making for an interesting trek back to the main trail.

In all a lot of fun and well worth it if you are looking for a workout and a reminder of how fun a smooth ribbon of wooded trail can be.

Cedarville is my home trail. I live about 4 miles away. I can bike in, do an 11 mile loop then bike back home and get almost 20 miles of riding all in less then 2 hours. Cedarville is a good trail, but I would not make a trip specifically to ride Cedarvile, but if your in the area you should give it a try. It is a nice place to go fast and get a good workout.

Park at the ranger station. Start the Orange trail in the back of the parking lot. At the T intersection about a 1/4 of a mile in, go left. Continue on the Orange trail, to where the Blue train connects to it. You will be on the blue and Orange trail now. Cross over a paved road still on the Orange and Blue trail. You will get to a dirt road, continue right on the blue trail (the Orange trail goes to the left). Follow the blue trail until you get the main dirt road and take a right down the dirt road toward the pond. Do the Green loop and come back and continue on the other half of the Blue trail. Follow the Blue trail until you come back to the Orange trail. Take the Orange trail to the right and follow the Orange trail back to the ranger station. This is about an 11 mile loop that only retraces about 30 yards of trails. This loop covers all the good aspects of Cedarville.

Good trails for physical training depending on how hard you push. Lived in this area for 23 years, can't remember the last time I saw the orange trail dry. Lot of exposed roots and a few decent climbs and decents.

About a 15 mile loop if you hit all the Blue, White, Orange, Green. Mostly flat with a good mix of twisty singletrack and fireroad. If you crank up the speed, this place is a rush! And it's not hard to let it rip with the excellent trail condition and lay-out. I've been riding here for 14 years and still enjoy it. M.O.R.E. (more-mtb.com) continues to add/improve trails. Southern MD gem.

Orange Trail is the longest tail at Cedarville. The trail is 7.0 miles. There’re lots of climbs, drops, tree roots, and vegetation. I would recommend bug spray do to you are near a swamp. The trail is market Easy but has a few drops. Overall a fun trail and beautiful scenery!

Not much elevation change being on the coastal plain. Everyone that complains about the trails being "non-technical" has to remember Southern P.G.County has a different geography than Western MD or even the Baltimore area. The trails allow you to ride really fast for at an almost constant speed, there are very few logs and no rocks to slow you down. Things that slowed me down were sandy areas a few muddy spots. The trails are very scenic- lots of pines, native azaleas, clethra, moss, and ferns everywhere. Lots of small streams everywhere too w/ wooden bridges.

Listen: Please don't ride after a heavy rain. The trails are soft and most susceptable to damage. When bike tires roll through a wet trail, the trail gets gouged and rutted. Cedarville needs at least a few days to dry out after a heavy rain, as do most trails. Riding on wet trails only leads to trail destruction and closure, which does not glorify Allah. On a lighter note, Cedarville is just an awesome place. I ride some super-tech places like the Watershed, and sometimes it's nice to just go to Cedarville and spin: put it in the third ring and get that jump-to-hyperspace effect. You'd never think you could ride your bike in the woods on singletrack that fast for that long. Hats off to the folks at Cedarville: All the trails are clearly marked; it's almost impossible to get lost. You can bust out 15 miles w/o a map and not repeat any trail. This place rallies. It's a great place when you're in a mellow mood, want to get away from the crowds, and just ride. Also a great place to introduce somebody to the sport. Abdallah Akbar!

Park at the ranger station, start the orange trail clockwise, then hook all the trails up in one clockwise pattern. There's a map inside the ranger station.

Not real technical but its the only single track of any length on my way home from work. If you push you can have some fun-especially near dusk. Some real twisty rides through the woods can be cool if ridden faaast. I use it as a training trail. Lots of deer, coon, horse crap, watch out for hikers and horseback riders.

Customer Service

I start at the ranger station, ride the orange, white, start the blue, do the green, and finish the blue. Its like 16 miles.
