The Marylander's trail beat the shit out of me today. It was harder than first time riding it :lol2:

But went down just once. Hopefully the bike is fine as it fell on me :lol2:

After we met up with Tom and had a good riding. Tom says brakes are overrated so he lost his front pads on the trail, removed the caliper and went on riding. About the same pace or sometimes even faster than before. A Monster :lol2:

First warm ride this year :thumbup:

It was good meeting and riding with you Janis. After you left I went over to Peter's Mill trail to check out the camp ground. I stayed on the easy side(left). Still had a good ride. Fast and flowy with hundreds of thousands of baby heads(rocks) and a bunch of Jeeps. I found the lot at the end of the trail but never found the camp sites. I'll have to check my GoPro and see if I have anything worth sharing. And get some front brake parts. :cheers:

Funny how trails can be harder some days

I protect my bike in that way often

Great day today for us too. Jacob & I put 120 miles on the Harley’s. Shoulder is not ready for dirt but street is ok :thumbup:

Towards the far end there is a (narrow?) quad trail that leads to the campground. I think it is marked but its a very small sign.

I was wondering the same recently - if it's possible to camp there and what's around. I once rode that road too and saw some campers towards the end, but I guess the real campsites are somewhere else.

The camp ground is primitive only so It's probably just a clearing some fire pits and a shitter... As far as stuff to do in the area think we pretty much did that yesterday.
