Annnapolis, MD - MORE, TrailWerks Cyclery, and the City of Annapolis are excited to announce a new multi-use natural surface trail project in Anne Arundel County! Volunteers, lead by MORE trail experts, will construct approximately 9 miles of sustainable single track trail at the City's Waterworks property.

"We are excited that MORE has chosen to work with the city to expand recreational opportunities on this beautiful city property," Mayor Gavin Buckley said of the project. "I love running and riding my bike on trails like these and MORE's ability to tackle this project at no cost to the city is critical."

The trails will consist of 4 stacked loops and 5 connector trails over rolling terrain, with access to the Anne Arundel County Bacon Ridge trails. The existing facilities at Waterworks Park will not be impacted or intersected, with the new trails located entirely outside of the existing permit-only park. The trail will extend from Housley Road and Defense Highway (Rte 450), north, to Honeysuckle Lane. This project will extend the Anne Arundel County trail network to nearly 30 miles, with additional projects to be announced soon.

Construction will begin Sunday, June 2nd. Details on how to get involved will be announced in the coming weeks. If you can't help build, consider donating to MORE to support the efforts to bring natural surface trails to Anne Arundel County.

The design, construction, and maintenance of the trail system will be done at no cost to the city with 100% of the services provided by local volunteers. The estimated value of a project this size from design to build is about $800,000.
