VHTRC Guide to Local Trails

Rosaryville Perimeter Trail

Rosaryville State Park is a 982 acre day-use park and the location of the historic Mount Airy Mansion. This run is one loop of the Perimeter Trail. The terrain is almost all rolling singletrack, mostly in deep woods with some interspersed meadows. The Annapolis Stider’s Rosaryville Veteran’s Day 50K is essentially three loops of this run.


What you do is up to you, but you shouldn't rely on these directions alone; they are often not specific enough to navigate by, and may be incorrect or out of date. Review a map beforehand and carry it with you. Tell a friend where you are going and when you plan to return. Do not count on having cell phone service while on the run. The VHTRC is not responsible for your welfare on any of these runs. If you go on one of these runs and get lost, run out of water, get injured, mauled by a bear, or die, or if anything else goes wrong, it's your fault; not ours. You assume all risks here and the VHTRC assumes none at all. Legal issues aside, some of these runs are more remote than others and the VHTRC is not suggesting that you do any of these runs, unless you are prepared to accept full responsibility for yourself.
