This trail is popular with both hikers and mountain bikers. It is one of the few places in Maryland where there is a well developed network of trails that go through a farm. It is a farm in an out of the way section of Seneca Creek State Park. It is a flatter hike, but with plenty of wildlife and seasonal crops to view.

Directions:

I-270 North from 495

Exit 10 in Gaithersburg and following MD 117 (Clopper Rd) westward

In 2 miles you will pass the entrance to the main part of the state park, but continue along MD 117, going through the intersection with Germantown Rd.

Left onto Shaeffer Rd at the next intersection.

2.5 miles turn left onto what looks like a private driveway at 14938 Shaeffer Rd.

Take the left fork for the parking lot.
