Hiking Maryland & Delaware

Are we even sure there's a trail there?! Blazing?! Where?! I spent 30 minutes trying to find the trailhead. I asked a DNR officer who was parked along the road. He just looked at me like I spoke Greek. I gave up and went to another trail in the park. But, just to add salt to the wounds, I picked up a nail and ended up changing a truck tire in the mud! Oh, yeah! Lot's of fun in Green Ridge! Save yourself the hassle and go to a park that has properly marked trailheads. I'm sure we'll all get lost at one time or another on the trail, but we shouldn't get lost finding the DARN things!!!!
Serenity is a most appropriate description of this trail. It is no longer called the Green Ridge Trail but rather the Pine Lick Trail. Not difficult at all to hike, except maybe when the creeks are up in the spring. There is a newer trail called Twin Oaks Trail just east of Double Pine Road which would make a much better and rustic circuit with this trail rather than the road. Many well separated campsites for rental. Watch the blazing - the white diamond is a poor blaze for marking turns. See Green Ridge State Forest map for details on this and other trails in this beuatiful forest.
