Bike Trails:

Trolley Trail — bike riders who don’t mind a little bit of on-street riding can cross under the rail tracks at the College Park METRO station (Calvert Road), and then cross campus Drive at River Road to access the festival.  Users who don’t want to ride on the street can take the Trolley Trail to Lake Artemesia, and then access the southbound Northeast Branch Trail around the College Park Aviation Museum to the signposted path leading behind the JTCC and to College Park Day.

Northeast Branch Trail:

Accessing College Park day from the northeast branch trail is easy!  Watch for the signs from the Northeast Branch Trail segment between the College Park Aviation Museum and Campus Drive.  These signs will lead you down a side path behind the JTCC Tennis Center, and directly to the parking lot of the Aviation Museum where College Park Day is taking place.

Bike racks will be on location in a sectioned-off area with an event volunteer in place to monitor.
