Explore the trails of Garrett County, Md., on amazing mountain bike trails. Head north on Garrett Highway 219 to the small town of Accident where you will find some awesome single track at the Margraff Plantation www.garretttrails.org/northern-region-trails.html which is part of Savage River State Forest. This trail loops around the top of a ridge above a natural gas storage site with views of hardwood forests intermixed with plantation pines which were planted by the CCC many years ago as part of substandard farm reclamation project.
Look closely in the woods and you will see the rock fences built as the farmers cleared the land over 100 years ago. Notice the large trees that grew out of these fence lines. The trail is fast with hard climbs. There are several technical rock gardens. Experienced riders allow 2 hours ride time.
