"The Seneca Bluffs Trail is the result of collaboration between several user groups. Equestrians, hikers, and mountain bikers, represented by the Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts (MORE) worked diligently in 2012 and 2013 to repair, reroute, and build several new sections of the trail that now connects Black Rock Road with River Road in Germantown.The trail has been incorporated into MORE’s annual MoCo Epic and continues to be improved and maintained by volunteers from all user groups."

"This lower leg of the 2S-mile Seneca Creek Greenway Trail, from River Road to Black Rock Mill, sees less foot traffic than either the middle or northern sections. Consequently, its gentle mix of woods and meadows offers hikers hours of walking time with few interruptions." Read more

"The Seneca Ridge Trail (SRT) is one of the region’s new additions to the vast catalog of off-road riding destinations. This trail is pretty special, and bound to become a showpiece for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The 7-mile ribbon of singletrack connects Schaeffer’s white loop with the Seneca Creek Park System, giving you the chance to ride nearly 20 miles of just singletrack. Add the loops at Schaeffer Farm and you could spin nearly 40 miles in classic East Coast ribbon." Read more

Moderate to easy hike, with lots of beauty and a great variety of ecosystem types. Very low key and fun. Humid and way too many gnats, but other than that a really great moderate hiking area within striking distance of some other spectacular hikes.
