Potomac River Trail System

Alt Names

Wallman Road, Laurel Run ORV Trail, Wallman Road ORV Trail

Last Known StatusOpen

This multiple use trail system offers about seven miles of novice dirt and gravel logging roads and about three miles of hiking trails. The trails wind through a scenic forest that contains a mixture of various pines, spruce and hardwood trees with some sections following the historic Potomac River.

A permit is required and can be purchased in advance by either visiting the Potomac State Forest Office during the week or one of the Maryland DNR Service Centers. Numerous turkey, black bear and white-tailed deer inhabit the area.
