Not to quibble, but isn't the actual crossing in Frederick Co?

Is it? If so, much better! I haven't been there myself.

Yep. The ford is a couple of hundred yards to the west of the intersection of Hayes Rd. (also a nice gravel road) which is almost on the county line.

Here's an old shot of the ford.

And one giving an idea of the creek bottom.

I thought the creek was the county line b/tw Frederick and Montgomery.

I stumbled upon that creek once on my way home from work when I had my WeeStrom. It was shortly after a rain and the water was about halfway up my boots...while my feet were on the pegs. At least the bottom is smooth and only mildly soft.
