Welcome to MontgomeryRides!

Montgomery County, Maryland is a hub of equestrian activity in the U.S. As one of the most affluent counties in the U.S., the county has many horses, many horse trails, and many sources of maps of horse trails. Unfortunately, these maps are not only scattered, but searchers will stumble on bad links and maps of poor quality. This site integrates these multiple sources, and adds its own zoomable, pannable, Google maps of Maryland trails. I'll be adding photos too -- of the beauty and hazards of our trails. For many of our riding areas, I have created multiple pages, each showing a different ride you can do in the area. I've tried to accurately report distances and ride times (at a walk), but some of the calculations may make you laugh.

My focus began with rides close to home, but has expanded to farther afield. It is my ambition to map every official horse trail in the State of Maryland in 2018. So far, I've mapped 52 miles on my mountain bike, 398 miles on my boy G, and 301 miles on my gal Freckles. Our latest ride was Seneca Bluffs Trail: Poole's Store to Rt 28. We've still got some miles to go before we sleep. When Freckles and I participate in events out of state, I will add maps of those routes, too.

You can contribute to this mapping project. I recommend that you get an app for tracking outdoor activities, such as MotionX GPS or Gaia GPS. When you begin a ride, simply start recording on your app, and tuck your cellphone in your pocket. During the ride, take a few pictures -- beautiful stuff, happy times, important turns. When you reach the barn or your trailer, stop recording your track, add the photos to the map, save your work, and let your app email the GPX and photos to me, David Stang. I'll post it here, and give you credit.

Please follow these guidelines when using any trails:

  • Avoid riding on trails within 24 hours of significant rain, especially between November and April, or whenever the ground is so soft from rain that your track will bruise the trail.
  • Stay on marked trails. Where a trail skirts a farm field, stay to the edge, along the woods. Do not ride through crops! This is especially important if your app is creating a map for others to follow.
  • Stay off trails that are marked on the map "Hiker Only".
  • Clean up manure before you leave the parking area.
