Sorry about my name everyone. I just think it’s funny. My name is Colton and I’m 18.

Now that is a better start.
Good to see you standing in your pic, nice start to more advanced riding.
Get some decent safety gear as no land owner all allow any rider to ride without being ready for a crash.
Hate to say it but get used to driving for any decent riding. You found DAMN Riders, look up Del Val as they are a very large group that organizes many events. Join and when ride work days happen go get involved. It may be a day stomping forest trails clearing brush for a future event. You show interest and effort and you will become included to more club gatherings. Many rides with them will require a FRO permit however watch for sign up for Dirty Santa and for that sign up fee you will get to ride one of the FRO locations. Gives you a taste of what FRO has to offer before spending the $275 for a year permit. Most important is you will get to connect with hundreds of like minded people.

I also live in Eldersburg. Your two best options for being a new rider are Mountain Ridge ATV, which has a lot of well-marked trails. I can tell you a nice 10-mile loop that will get you going. It's 2:30h away, but it's worth it. Your second best choice is Wicomico Motorsports Park. It's 1:30 away, but the trails aren't particularly well marked, they don't have anywhere near as many trails as Mountain Ridge, and their trails are rutted because every year they run a sloppy mudfest of a hare scramble the first weekend of the year (which I always do and is a lot of fun, but it thrashes the trails). I would do MR over Wicomico, tbh. I *do* go to MR over Wicomico. Aside from the hare scramble, I've only been to Wicomico once, but I've been to MR many times. You can camp onsite if that helps, but I've also done a lot of day trips.

Where are you in e-burg?

I don’t know how I missed your comment, I’m sorry. I went to Boyer farm in WV a few months ago and I haven’t ridden since then. I heard there might be trails 90 minutes away at Tomahawk MX, I just haven’t had time to call and see. I’m located near Liberty high school.

I went once more than 10 years ago. The loop trail was fine. But I didnt think it was worth the $40 gate fee.

Its been a while. Maybe the trails are better.

I've been meaning to get over to Tomahawk for a while now. My cabin is in the same town. It's just a matter of throwing my bike on the back of the truck when I go there, which should be easier as the work on the cabin is winding down.

I'll make it a point to go to tomahawk this summer. I don't have much hope for their trails, tbh, but they also have an endurocross practice area that sounds interesting.

Ya don't say..... That is interesting indeed. Think I'll go see how powerful google actually is.
