There are five known fords left in the county, including the Hoyles Mill crossing — two vehicle fords through Little Bennett Creek in Hyattstown on Prescott and Hyattstown Mill roads, a vehicle ford on West Old Baltimore Road through Ten Mile Creek in Boyds and a bicycle ford through Sligo Creek, according to Jamie Kuhns, a parks historian. The two Hyattstown fords were closed more than 12 years ago, and the streets were abandoned and became parks roads, according to the county's Rustic Roads Functional Master Plan. The Ten Mile Creek ford is still open.
The Hoyles Mill crossing is foot/bike/horse only.

Most of it is, but it looks like it only crosses water in Fredneck County.

I had a fun Sunday (instead of studying for my History final).

Here's the Old Baltimore Road crossing.

I went to the right, between the two rocks, no video as there wasn't a convenient place to put the camera.

and Price's Distillery Road
