This trail system can be ridden individually or in conjunction with Bacon Ridge. Those who wish to combine Bacon Ridge and Waterworks can park on Bacon Ridge Road in Crownsville to access Bacon Ridge for a ride south down to Waterworks. Alternatively, you can park on Housley Road to access Waterworks to ride north to Bacon Ridge.
Please park at the Housley Loop trailhead near 100 Housley Road to access the southern trailhead. To access the northern trailhead, please park at the Generals Highway Corridor Park and ride in, or ride from Bacon Ridge.
Do not park in the Defense Highway Parking Lot, which is reserved for permit holders using the fenced Waterworks Park, or on Honeysuckle Lane, which is narrow and does not have room for parking. Finally, do not park on Gomoljak Lane off Honeysuckle Lane. Gomoljak Lane is a private road and all cars parked there will be towed at the owner's expense.



Donations made directly through this page go directly to the selected trails system and help MORE and its trail liaisons purchase materials, tools and hire the expertise necessary to help us maintain and sustain world class trails in the Washington DC Metropolitan region.

$10 Minimum Donation. Please change the quantity to increase your donation.

* When donating to a specific trail system MORE will endeavor to use your donation as it was designated, but under extenuating circumstances may assign the funds to other trails/projects in consultation with the appropriate trail liaison or project leader in such cases as, including but not limited to, the closure of the park, failure of the project to move forward, completion of the project under budget, extended periods of inactivity and/or other factors limiting the ability to apply the funds to the original intended designation.

The trails at Waterworks are suitable for riders of all abilities but include sections more suitable for intermediate to advanced riders. MORE subscribes to IMBA's trail difficulty ratings

MORE Volunteer David Beugelmans is leading a dedicated and passionate group of volunteers to create riding opportunities in Annapolis.
