Short ride between Belair Rd and Jericho covered bridge

Adopt These Trails!

Overview

No restrictions on this section (that I know of).

Description

Park in lot on east side of Belair Rd. Ride north on the road, across bridge over Little Gunpowder River. White blazed trailhead is just over the bridge on the right. This map takes the white blazed trail from the lot to Jerusalem Mill, then hope on the yellow blazed trail out to the covered bridge, back onto white trail to complete loop. At the mill, ride along edge of field and enter blue blazed trailhead on the left.

There are three stream crossings on this ride. Two can be ridden, one cannot (at least not for me). Lots of rocky, rooty technical sections along this entire ride. Some short, steep climbs with rocks and roots - nothing too heinous, though.

This is only a very small portion of the total trails available at LGP. I'll map and add more sections.

Some Mud - Lower areas are still pretty sloppy from the rain. Other than that I saw no issues... crazy fun trail!

Getting forecast...

Rode this today for first time. Very nice section of Gunpowder. I was the first one through so I collected lots of webs. Only time I had to dismount was for that first big water crossing thats more like a small gorge. It gets a bit muddy by Jerusalem Rd. But I tend to think its always like that. Aug 15, 2015
