The Catoctin Blue trail, which is a great ride, pretty much bisects the area from north to south. However, the glory of this area is the myraid of offshoots that go every which way through the woods. There is everything from Gambrill-style cross-country to killer DH with major hucking opportunity, but ya' gotta look for it. There's something for everyone except novices. There are no mpas so hook up with a local or take the time to explore. You can spend many days here and not find it all. I'll be back as often as I can until I move out of the DC area. It's great to know there's a place I'll never outgrow. From the parking area in the directions, head North and have a great time!
