Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Located in western Maryland, this area offers a few non-motorized trails and a 4x4 trail that is about six miles long. The trail is open year-round and is usually dry and rocky but is closed seasonally to offroad use between December 15 through March 15.

All OHVs must display a Maryland ORV Sticker which can be purchased at the Savage River State Forest Ranger Station. During the winter months snowmobiles are permitted on the trails.
