Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Jennifer Chambers
"The Blue Mash Trail is located on 545 acres at the closed Oaks Land?ll in northern Montgomery County. This hiking-only trail and a separate shared-use trail surround the capped land?ll in its buffer zone. Opened in 1982, the landfill stopped receiving waste in 1997 and was capped in 2001. Because of an agreement with area residents, the Department of Public Works and Transportation and Montgomery Parks constructed a network of compact soil trails to create a green space for local residents. The easy Blue Mash Trail is best enjoyed on a blue sky day during spring when you will likely see flowers, birds, and butterflies. This hike is on a wide, mostly grass-covered loop surrounding beautiful meadows and a large bioretention pond. The trail is not blazed but is marked at the intersections and turns with signs, making for easy navigation." Read more
