The Seneca Ridge Trail ("SRT") connects Schaeffer Farms to Seneca Creek State Park.

Mike Van Abel

Description

No night riding. Sunrise to sunset permitted.
Located a little over an hour's drive northwest of Washington D.C., in Montgomery County, MD, this new 2011 built trail is featured in the MoCo Epic and is the result of the stellar partnership between MORE and Maryland's Dept. of Natural Resources.

This ride begins at Riffle Ford Rd. and is typically enjoyed as an out and back to/from the old Black Rock Mill. The Seneca Ridge Trail ("SRT") connects Schaeffer Farms to Seneca Creek State Park. The terrain is a mixture of fast flowing singletrack, roots, some rocks, a few log-overs and creek crossings many of which are bridged and a few that may get your feet wet at high flows. It is a shared trail with hikers, horses, and trail runners.

Dry - Trail is in great shape. Go ride your damn bike....
Update ConditionsHistory

Nice flow with minimal technical challenges. Some of the terrain can be pumped and the curves are fun at speed. Climbs are over quickly and rewarded with smooth descents. This a good trail for the beginner/intermediate rider. Parking was tight at the Mill. Next time I'll park roadside on Riffle Mill Road. Apr 21, 2014


Pump track for trail bikes. Nothing technical here, just flowing trail with easy climbs sprinkled in. Not touching your brakes and pumping the terrain yields the most fun. On a dry spell in the middle of the summer, you will a blue groove laid down from everyone riding, grip for days in these conditions with the right tire. Aug 11, 2016
