Fairland Recreational Park Trails

Fairland Recreational Park Trail Map LocatorDescription

Geographically situated in both the Coastal Plain and Piedmont, this Park is the only bi-county park owned by M-NCPPC.

The vegetation and wildlife will vary from our other parks due to its unique location. Of the 322 acres on the Montgomery County side, only 39 acres are developed because the area is environmentally sensitive

Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are "Shared by All" trails which includes hikers, bikers and equestrians. Additional information about permitted uses of Park trails is available on our Trail User Information page.
