Just north of Frederick, Maryland, adjacent to Gambrill State Park and accessible from the Gambrill State Park Yellow loop is the Frederick Watershed.

The “Shed” is a fantastic mountain bike playground extremely popular with Washington D.C. and Baltimore riders. There are miles of unpaved forest roads and rocky singletrack trails winding all over Catoctin Mountain, all of them are perfectly suitable for off-road bikes and provide an incredibly challenging playground for advanced riders.

The terrain is very steep and rugged, and suitable for intermediate and advanced riders.

* When donating to a specific trail system MORE will endeavor to use your donation as it was designated, but under extenuating circumstances may assign the funds to other trails/projects in consultation with the appropriate trail liaison or project leader in such cases as, including but not limited to, the closure of the park, failure of the project to move forward, completion of the project under budget, extended periods of inactivity and/or other factors limiting the ability to apply the funds to the original intended designation.

The trails at the Frederick Watershed are challenging and can be unforgiving to the unprepared rider. The trails are suitable for riders of intermediate and advanced abilities. MORE subscribes to IMBA's trail difficulty ratings

MORE Volunteers donated over 700 hours of their time to help maintain the trails at the Frederick Watershed in 2018.
