I will be in Maryland from July 2- 6. I will mosly be near or in the Havre de Grace area(Harford County) Chesapeake Bay. I was wondering what the good local trails are and if there are any LBS that rent out bikes.

Thank you!

Susquehanna State Park, Fairhill and Loch Raven Reservoir are probably your best bets for riding. Not sure on shops to rent bikes, I'd bring your own.
Awesome, found out my friend is right next to Susquehanna. Now I just need to find a bike shop that rents a bike.

How technical are these trails?

How technical? Guess it depends on what you are used to riding and what your skill level is. Where do you usually ride?

It's been a while since I've been there, but I'd describe the trails like this: short sort of steep ups and downs, mostly dirt with some roots and rocks thrown in. Sections used to have a lot of waterbars but they are supposed to be reworking a bunch of the trails so some of that may be gone.

I think most riders would call them moderately technical at best, but I tend to ride a lot of technical stuff so that always skews my perspective. I wouldn't take a brand new rider there but if you've been MTBing for a bit you should be fine.

i concur. my reference point is Fairhill where i do most of my riding, and i wouldn't describe that as technical either. Susquehanna does have a couple of decent hills for this part of the country.

there's also Gun Powder Falls (near Susquehanna). Never been there, don't know what it's like. And of course Potapsco (how ever you spell that) near Baltimore (hour drive) ranges from mello-with-hills (west) to more technical than this old guy is willing to try (east).
