Itinerary:
Get outdoors on a beautiful Fall morning for a bike ride along the North Central Railroad (NCR) Trail in Baltimore County, MD. We will start at the Ashland, MD NCR Trail parking lot near Hunt Valley and ride to White Hall and back. There will be a short stop in Monkton to use the rest facilities and explore the railroad station. The bike ride is at your own pace for those who enjoy a workout or for those who like to take in the scenery along the way. The NCR is primarily a flat crushed stone surface hiking/biking trail. The round trip distance for this ride is approximately 21 miles.

We will certainly have an appetite when we return to Ashland. So for those inclined, we will lunch together at Wegmans in the Hunt Valley shopping mall.

Parking at the trailhead can be competitive so carpooling with MOC members is encouraged.
