Green ridge state forest has an ORV trail. Nothing crazy, but for beginners, it's pretty narly. That was my first trail and I had a lot of fun. Be prepared for a long day though, the trail itself is 18 miles long.

the area out by Carpendale...is it on public or private land, and if so, do you need a registration/permit or someone's approval to wheel there?

ORV Trails in Western MD

There are a few basic trails that are open in Garrett County, MD. The DNR trails open are: Wallman and Laurel Run, Snaggy Mountain, Piney Mountain and Backbone Mountain. Maps are available in PDF format on the Maryland State Parks web site. A really challenging road is found at Davis, WV south of Oakland, MD, on the CLR Road that runs from Blackwater Falls State Park to WV 32 and runs for about 12-13 miles. The first four leading from the park are probably level 5-6 as it stays wet all year due to the tree cover. There is also an ORV trail up by Exit 22 of I-68. Don't know the name of it but was on it last fall. Hope that helps. For more info, drop a reply.

I'd like to find a few places to go. My jeep is bone stock though. Don't really have plans on doing things to it til late summer after I recoup some money from the down payment. I go to Frostburg, so places near in Allegany and Garret are great.

Sadly, there are no local sites in Maryland to offroad on. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has closed whatever remaining OHV trails were open. A small group of offroaders and outdoor enthusiasts have been working with DNR to open new Offroad parks in Md.

That being said, the only 'official' area in Maryland to offroad is on Assateague Island. Any other area used without expressed written permission of the land owner is illegal and trespassing.

Here's a list of areas we have wheeled over the last 20 years or so:

MARYLAND

Assateague Island, Worcester County, MD
Requested Page Not Found (404) -
Yearly permit required ($70). The area consists of 12 miles of sand beach within Maryland and additional beach South into Virginia. It should be stressed that this is nothing more than flat sand.

PENNSYLVANIA

Rausch Creek Offroad Park - Joliett, PA (in the area of Tower City & Tremont)
Rausch Creek Off Road Park
A yearly membership fee of $10 is required. This membership fee applies to all drivers and all passengers. Once you are a member, the price to wheel at the park is $35 per day, per vehicle, and $5 per day for passengers. Rausch Creek offers over 1000 acres of terrain for wheeling. Trails range from stock through highly technical.

Rock Run Recreation Area - Western Pa
Western PA 4x4 Trail Advisory Committee :: Index
On site primitive camping will be available for those instances.

The members of the Advisory Committee will be coordinating all trail rides; please do not contact the park for OHV information (they will direct you back to us). The WPA4XTRAC will provide trail guides. Trail rides are limited to 40 participants. Pre-registration for all events is required.

We will offer three trail rides each day: green/low blue, blue/low black, and upper black. We do not have a red trail rating, but we certainly have trails that would garner a red rating at other parks. The trails were cut with smaller SUVs in mind (such as Jeep Grand Cherokees). Full size vehicles will find the trails to be very tight. Suggested equipment is as follows:
Green/low blue: stock vehicles and those with a mild lift (15 vehicles per trailride)
Blue/low black: 33” tires and at least one locker (10 vehicles per trailride). Potential for body and drivetrain damage.
Upper Black: 35” tires(minimum requirement), two lockers, and winch. Body and drivetrain damage are very possible. (15 vehicles per trailride)
To register for one of our trail rides, please include your name, address, phone number, trail selection, club (if applicable) and general vehicle specifics to dan58@marylandcreepers.com. The cost is $25/day plus $5 for passengers. Primitive camping is $10, and you must notify us 1-week prior to camping. Staging for trailrides begins at 0900, with a short drivers’ meeting following.


VIRGINIA

George Washington National Forest - Harrisonburg, VA
George Washington & Jefferson National Forests - Home
George Washington National Forest (GWNF) offers miles of offroad vehicle travel on its forest service roads. These roads are largely non-technical fire roads however they offer wonderful weekend camping activities.

Crozet - Crozet, VA
http://www.xjsrule.com
Run by Chris and Heather Packard, the site of the Virginia RockCrawling and Offroad Challenge is opened periodically throughout the year for opening wheeling. The trails range from technical to highly technical.

Big Dogs Offroad - Gore, VA
Home
A fee of $75 applies for 3 days or $65 for 2 days. The area is open 4 times a year for seasonal wheeling events. The trails range from technical to highly technical.

Other Notable Areas

Wharton State Forest- Pine Barrens, New Jersey
Department of Environmental Protection
Flat, sand, water, mud.

Uwharrie National Forest - Troy, NC
http://www.cs.unca.edu/nfsnc/recreat...harrie_off.htm
A fee of $5 per day or $30 per year applies. Individual trails vary in length from 1.2 miles to 3.4 miles, but the ORV area networks the trails that they may be connected in series of un-recrossed lengths of up to about 20 miles. Trails range from stock to highly technical.
