Trip Report - Green Ridge State Forest, MD

Wife and I needed some much needed time away from DC and people. Headed out to GRSF, only about 1.5 hours from NOVA.

This is an overlander's paradise - with over 70 miles worth of roads in various levels of upkeep to drive, some really cool sites and over 100 primitive campsites to use. You can do this solo or in a group. Either way, some of the roads can be washed out, the mud can be deep and you never know - so go adequately prepared with recovery gear. The map is deceiving and you can spend an entire day on the 45-mile self guided tour or days on your own going into every little road.

If you are camping, get there early. First come, first serve on the sites. They have shooting, fishing, rafting, mountain biking in the forest, so there is something for everyone. They do not sell wood most of the time, so pick some up at the Exxon on Exit 68 or find your own fall. $10 per night.

We have no complaints.

Yep - called Greenridge Tunnel or Stickpile Tunnel, depending on who you ask. The old rail line is right on the Potomac, and C&O canal. Ran trains from the 1900's, tracks pulled up in the 70's. Supposedly someone was murdered in there and the body covered with sticks... hence the second name. And the ghost.
