Offroading In Montgomery County

Did anyone every reply back on your post? I bought my daughter a Jeep last year and she is looking for local places to go 4 wheeling. We actually live in the Olney/Brookeville area of Montgomery County which is not far from Rockville.

Thx

There's nowhere legal unless you can get written permission for someones property

Working with cars is a little like a really awesome date: you start out expecting this to be something simple and straightforward; four hours later you're laying under her, panting and cursing, and things are a lot more complicated than you thought.

When my Jeep stops making strange noises, I become concerned. That usually means I have to go back and find whatever fell off.

I fought the law, and the law won.

Years ago (circa 2007-08) I used to frequent West Old Baltimore Rd. there were tons if great trails, mud pits, and stream crossings. I figure I wasn't harming anything, so no one would have a reason to bother me either. Until the Park Police drove by. This landed me a criminal citation of "offroad vehicle on private property", that carried a max sentence of 90 days. I went to court for it and ended up with a $1000 fine and 80 community service hours, that were mandated to be performed on the "work crew" (picking up trash with other deliquents on the side of the highway). It sucked, but I learned my lesson. The seargant told me the land was in the process of being adopted into Black Hills park, and that I was lucky it wasn't officially done yet. Otherwise the consequences would have been even worse.

- If the land isn't YOURS, it's private or public.
- If it's PUBLIC (parks, schools, highways, gas pipeline trails) ORV use is strictly prohibited unless explicitly expressed.
- If it's PRIVATE an you don't have permission, you'll end up like me. Bottom line is SOMEONE owns the land, if you don't.

The Catoctin Mountains between Gettysburg and Chambersburg Have tons of LIGHT trails and firebreaks. Lots of Snowmobile trails as well. Nothing spectacular, but it gets you off of the main roads.
Unfortunately, It is a hike to get there. I have n't had a chance to explore Harpers Ferry yet, But I was told a couple of years ago that there are good trails in that area.

I just got back into Jeeps literally four months ago after 4 years without a car, So I admit that any information I have is sketchy. Anywhere from the Germantown, Gaithersburg area is going to be a real drive to find any kind of off-roading. I am looking into any PA off road clubs as they do get permission from land owners to use their property.

I don't know how strict rail road trails are enforced these days, but I used to find many good areas along PP&L tracks when I lived in PA. I have only found very short rail access trails in MD so far...BUT I really don't feel comfortable about using them.

Maybe it's reaching...any state game lands you might be able to access with a hunting license?
