Green Ridge State Forest, located in western Maryland, is known for its rugged terrain, diverse ecosystems, and outdoor recreational opportunities. The forest covers a large area and offers hiking, camping, hunting, and fishing activities. Due to its proximity to Interstate 68, the forest is only a couple of hours away from the DC metro area. Carroll Road is an easy trail that offers an enjoyable journey from near the banks of the Potomac River to spectacular views across the river into West Virginia. A joy at any time of year, it is especially beautiful in the fall when the foliage creates a breathtaking kaleidoscope of oranges, yellows, and reds.
