Overview

Trail 2301 is an exciting track nestled in the Potomac River Area of Wolf Den Run State Park. This albeit short offroad adventure is not for the faint-hearted. Steep hills, rocks, and abundant mud test your offroading skills. And if you look closely, you'll see evidence of coal mines. Black slag heaps and sulfur-smelling puddles are proof of the industry that existed here a century ago when miners worked in these very hills. Now, their legacy becomes the backdrop for your offroad adventure.

Down in the valley, the Potomac River courses its way east. Its crystal-clear, cold waters contrast with the muddy chaos of the trail. The river valley is a haven for diverse wildlife. Keep an eye out for Bald Eagles soaring above, deer grazing, and ... what's that black shape behind those trees? Could it be one of the elusive black bears that call these hills home?

Trail 2301 is not just an offroad experience; it's a journey through the heart of the Appalachian wilderness, where mud, rocks, history, and wildlife converge to create an unforgettable experience. So, buckle up and get ready for your own offroad adventure on Trail 2301.
