Performed trail development training for Maryland-based trail crews. Training focused on understanding non-motorized trail users, designing multi-use trail systems, and trail construction, including rock armoring techniques (stone pitching, flagstone paving) and water crossings.
When you think about riding in Pennsylvania you’ll probably think…ROCKS! While this is true for most of the state, it’s a different experience at Raystown Lake. Think 30 miles of fun, flowy singletrack.

Some 150 people participated in the inaugural MoCo Epic ride, put on by the Mid Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts (MORE). Montgomery County, Maryland, is home to one-fifth of Maryland’s population, but there were long stretches where you would never know that. Riders were treated to some 40 miles of trail connecting nine different county parks. The MoCo Epic reveals the possibilities for great riding in suburban landscapes: A common refrain from participants was, “I felt like I was actually going somewhere.” They were, of course, even if the riding was just outside their own backyards.
