The Patapsco Epic
The 2014 Patapsco Epic will tour Rockburn Branch Park and Patapsco Valley State Park. Patapsco Valley State Park follows a steep valley with trails snaking up and down each side of the valley, so expect the excitement of a roller coaster as you’ll be going up and down most of time with very little flat terrain when on the single track. Many climbs are ¼ to ½ mile in length with some being quite steep ascents. The trails are also somewhat rocky and rooty, not so much that you feel that you are on rocks all day, but enough that you know they are there. This makes for a challenging course! Although no one section is excessively demanding, the course keeps you working most of the time with very little flat or road sections to rest on.
