    Default Off-roading in Maryland?

    Hey! First post and I think this is in the right thread...


    I'm headed out with two friends from Kansas City, MO to a group camp in Swallow Falls State Park, MD. I've Googled the heck out of Swallow Falls State Park but I'm not finding much on the park itself other than a few pictures and some brief descriptions.

    First, has anyone ever been to this park or one near it?

    And almost more importantly, I'm really interested in finding some class 1-4 (non-modified 4X4 vehicle) trails in the area. I've got a 4X4 Dodge Durango, off-road shocks, and All-terrain tires and I'm wanting to have some safe fun.

    Does anyone know of any resources in the area for 4X4ing or trails? Any advice on the region itself, i.e., things I've gotta see, drives I've gotta take?

    Yes, you are in the right spot -- good job -- and Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum.
    I'm headed out with two friends from Kansas City, MO to a group camp in Swallow Falls State Park, MD.
    I am not familiar with that park, but I have some resources for finding fun off-highway trails and I will post what I find when I return to the office later today. In the meantime, here is some limited info about off-highway travel options.

    Default Maryland and Nearby

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Here are the relevant resources for ATV and off-roading in Maryland and Pennsylvania. West Virginia does not list off-roading as one of the recreational activities available on its public lands.

    Default Great ideas!

    Hey, thanks for the resources. I found one that looks really promising:

    That was a link off of a link off one of the sites you provided. Using the trail name (that's one of the things I couldn't find) I was able to find some Google info.

    Thanks a ton! This looks like it's exactly what I was looking for.

    Default Del Albright -- Blue Ribbon Ambassador is on the case

    Del is our official off-highway guy and he has a bunch of resources and will be posting when he gets from going fishing today. (He is having another "tough day" at the office).

    Default Maryland and NE USA Four-wheeling

    HI all, sorry I'm late, but fishing and boat repairs got in the way. :)

    I'll start by offering some web sites and ideas for the northeast area of this great country for off road adventures:

    Northeast Association (of 4WD Clubs) lists some trails
    JonFund, in CT, email Dan Stra
    The Florida Road (CT) email Dan Stra
    East Coast 4WD Association has a trail listing, as does
    United Four Wheel Drive Assoc.
    And for Maryland specifically, email Preston Stevens:

    Google the Mid Atlantic Four Wheel Drive Assocation and the Baltimore 4Wheelers.
    Hope this helps for starters. Email me directly if I can help more.

    thanks, Del
