Patapsco Valley 50k

The Patapsco Valley 50k

  • Run over the trails of the Patapsco Valley State Forest west of Baltimore
  • About 4,700 feet of elevation gain (and loss) with rolling climbs and descents
  • Mostly buffed out single-track with a bit of rocks to keep you on your toes
  • Some miles which feel wonderfully remote
