    Any suggestions for places I can take the Jeep out to get it dirty that aren't far from Hagerstown? My girls want to go out with me and get something more than pavement dust on it. :icon_smile:

    I'm not really offroad equipped but looked a while back and I seem to remember some out past Deep Creek and out into Garrett county (Oakland and Savage area) but never been there myself. I've heard there was some private areas near Baltimore and further east. Seems pretty odd there aren't any in Frederick or Washington counties. Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough. Like I said I'm not well suited for much as mine is still pretty stock.

    I'll keep an eye on this. If you guys would be amenable to having an old geezer along I might be tempted to give it a shot. I am in Sterling, VA at the moment and could swing out that way. My jeep is stock (see sig) but it would be fun to try an easy trail. :)

    Mine pretty much stock also ltd02 other that mish mosh of a lift I put on it. I am still running the 225/75/16 that it has always run. They look a little silly now. I am not looking to do anything crazy off road yet. This is my DD that has to get to Frederick and back everyday.

    Profdlp what do you mean old geezer your not old if the age in your sig is correct. I would love to have some people to go riding with.

    I guess the "old geezer" stuff is relative. :icon_lol:

    Check with John 3:17 he is not far from there, don't think there are any legal wheeling areas around there though.

    That's true Tom, I did see he is local. Maybe he will drop in on this thread. Your right about there not being any legal trails. I used to run some of the back roads and it was frowned upon by some legal types.

    prodlp it is relative. Every year my kids wish me a happy birthday you old geezer lol

    My granddaughter is five. I'll bet that "old geezer" will find its way into her vocabulary before too much longer. :emotions34: :happy175:

    Oh I've been here eavesdropping and hoping someone knew of some that I didn't . There are supposedly some at Green Ridge other than that Rausch Creek.

    Just checked on Green Ridge - ORV trails have been closed to the Public. Maryland DNR has a list of public trails.

    Well that stinks that they closed it. Wonder if it was due to our state not having money. Seems like a lot of good things here get closed for that reason.

    So you location says Mason-Dixon. Where is that exactly lol. That is a long line of places it could be.
