American history from the colonial period to the present can be discovered at Fort Frederick State Park. Our 585 acre park features a unique stone fort that served as Marylands frontier defense during the French and Indian War. The Fort's stone wall and two barracks have been restored to their 1758 appearance. Historic exhibits are in the Fort, barracks, CCC Museum and Visitor Center. The park annually holds programs such as artillery firings, junior ranger, colonial childrens day and the 18th Century Market Fair. The park borders the Potomac River, and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal passes through the park. The park also features a boat launch, campsites, camp store, fishing, flat water canoeing, a hiking trail, interpretive and educational programs, picnicking, a playground, and a shelter. For more information on facilities, hours, and programs please contact the visitor center.

Another nice one. Maybe I need to learn nordic skiing and come back in the snow.

Loved it. Nice bike trail.

Great riding if you are not in the mood for dodging people. This trail has lots of passing room and has light traffic even on beautiful days.

Great trail ride, very scenic. The smooth flat asphalt surface makes for easy biking. Great for everyone especially beginners. Highly recommended!
