    Druid Hill Park bikers... unite?!?!

    Calling all/any Druid Hill Park mountain bikers!

    If there is anyone out there who might like to join forces to clear some more trail or build features in the area around the disc golf course of Druid Hill Park, please let me know. I know there's at least one other person who has been doing some of the short singletrack loops there because I see other tracks occasionally. I'm not looking to do anything major, but having a little area in the neighborhood for a place to get dirty would be cool, and there's plenty of unused wooded area.

    Disclaimer: Those who are not local to DHP - don't think you've found a new place to ride. Nobody would want to drive there to ride with so many other good spots just outside the city, but if you live in the Hampden/Charles Village area, its a good place to hit for a quickie.

    Anybody out there?

    Oh, and save us the "find some dead bodies" comments that I'm sure you're just dying to post.

    Crazy. When we still lived in Bmore I was hitting trails all the time and never knew there were trails there to ride. How much is there? Something to check out when we come back to visit.

    "Trails" is probably not the right word but... There are a few sections that have singletrack, mostly around the disc golf course "X holes" where the golfers have walked some paths through the woods. There are a few different spots and if they could be strung together it would make a cool little loop. Plus, there's plenty of "uncharted" territory where new trails could be cut.

    Like I said, not a destination, just a diversion.

    Bump.

    There is something cool about riding singletrack and being able to hit cars on 83 with a stone.

    If you guys live near Druid Hill you should check out Robert E. Lee. It's a 15 minute ride up Roland Ave from Hampden. I used to ride there, all trails and back to Hampden before I moved out on my own.

    People have built stuff in the park before so maybe building wouldn't be a BFD.

    Good luck and don't get mugged!
    I'm going to rob banks til I retire or get caught. Either way I'm set for life

    Cool. I'll PM you with my info and hopefully we can meet sometime soon if it stops raining. I'll show you what I know of and where I think the possibilities lie.

    I will be moving next month from Hampden so DHill won't exactly be my "local" spot anymore. BUT I'll be moving just up the road and will be closer to R.E. Lee, which is a decent ride also. Been there a bunch of times but not in a while. Have they rebuilt the bridge from the Lake Ave entrance yet?
