Join us for a camping weekend in beautiful Green Ridge State Forest in western Maryland. We'll be camping in one of the park's group camp sites in the northern park of the forest, Group Site 3, which is close to the junction of several trails and not far from the Potomac River.

We'll be doing a loop hike on the off-road vehicle trail in the center of the park on Saturday that will be about 12-13 miles. On Sunday, we'll head down for a shorter hike at the Paw Paw Tunnel on the C&O Canal.

This is a great place to enjoy early summertime and hang out in one of the best parks in Maryland!
