Comments: Downs Park has 231 acres of beautiful parkland facing the Chesapeake Bay,
with paved and natural surface paths. NOTE: this is a wetlands park, so
many natural paths will have muddy patches, even if it hasn't rained/snowed
lately; even the paved trails will have puddles on occasion. The 5K trail is all
paved and entirely inside the park. Both 10K trails employ natural paths,
and will have restrooms in several places. The A trail starts outside of the
park and goes through a neighborhood around the park, mainly on road
shoulders, before entering the park via a pedestrian gate. It finishes by
walking a short distance along Mountain Road. The B trail starts and ends
inside the park, with a short loop in the nearby neighborhood. There are no
sidewalks outside the park so neither trail is recommended for wheelchairs.
The use of strollers will require additional care. Pets are not allowed inside
the start point (market). Pets must be kept on a leash and cleaned up
