SCHAFFER FARMS


Schaeffer Farm is the hub of a trail system unique in Maryland and was one of the first mountain bike trail systems developed and maintained by MORE starting in 1994.

The trails at Seneca Creek State Park provide the backbone of a network that extends into most of the upcounty area. Configured in a series of loops, you can enjoy as few as four miles or go for an all-day adventure. It is possible to do a trail loop stretching 60 miles or more when you leave the trailhead. Linking the Seneca, Muddy Branch, and Potomac watersheds, visitors can journey from Schaeffer to Damascus to the Potomac and back.

One of these larger loops has been recognized by the International Mountain Bicycling Association as one of the best and most important routes in the country.
