    Kid friendly rides (tag along bike)

    I live in just south of Baltimore. I was wondering if anyone knows of some good kid friendly trails for a tag along bike. Especially near camp grounds would be even better. Anywhere in MD,VA,WV,PA. Looking to try to get my son out on his tag along more and if we can camp all the better.

    My son just turned 4 so looking for smoother scenic or just long smooth trails on dirt. Hills are fine I'll drag him up or down just need trails without to many roots, rocks, logs etc...

    Tony's post asking about scenic rides got me thinking about that. But I don't know how kid friendly some of those places would be.

    Thanks
    -Paul

    I rode Pocomoke this summer when we were in Ocean City. They have camping and pretty smooth trails through the woods. Not mountain biking but trails through the woods.
    Tuckahoe State Park on the Eastern Shore have some ok trails and I think camping.
    Cedarville in Upper Marlboro (MD) has camping some decent trails through the woods, again not real mountain biking but trails through the woods.

    The C&O canal sounds right up your alley. Crushed stone surface, flat, free camping, frequent water stops, nice scenery, swimmin' holes, etc. It's a really great easy ride, especially during the warm months. My friends and I usually do a weekend bikepacking trip during the summer, starting out of Brunswick riding west.

    Lots of good info on this site: http://bikewashington.org/canal

    Also, there's the NCR/YCH trail, flat crushed stone, runs from White Marsh across the Mason-Dixon into York. Plenty of places to stop and see things/eat ice cream and sandwiches/swim/etc.
