    I don't know if camping is allowed on the old Turnpike itself, but the road between the tunnels is surrounded by Buchanan State Forest, where camping is allowed in most places. For the tunnels, you...

    You may want to look up what airport van shuttle services (non AT related) are available from BWI. I'm sure you can get to either Frederick or Hagerstown (I am thinking of one in particular that...

    They were out in force at Martin Hill Wild Area in Bedford Co a weekend ago. Found a few on me and removed them, but must have missed one and had to go to the ER to get an engorged one removed from...

    Tuscarora State Forest would offer some loop ideas. Using the Tuscarora Trail, and some trails in the Masland Natural Area, Bill Miller, Cold Spring, and so forth can make a nice remote loop.

    No, it's not as rocky as the AT in eastern PA. So now you need to ask the next most obvious question.

    (edit: bolded the wrong "as" initially)

    I'm not that far from Michaux, and thus do a lot of hiking there. It also helps that there are hundreds of miles of trail in the area, both official and not-so-much. There are many great areas on...

    Limited, and not very obvious. Space for two, maybe three cars at most. I wouldn't consider it an overnight parking spot. Not really due to safety, but more because of nearby house(s).

    The topography data there is lidar based, not from a scanned map. I do suppose there could be some data processing errors, tho I somewhat doubt it. (For example, in one of the areas I generally...

    It shows up in The National Map's elevation data. So maybe it is real. Perhaps an old quarrying area? I'd probably want better resolution data than 1/9 arc second given, but NC requires...

    Tough section, but good for solitude. I've hiked most of it save for Knob Mtn. You got plenty of steep up/down hills. Tells us about 641 parking; I need to do a couple of day hikes or shuttles...

    A short loop can be made starting at the Maverick Lane parking lot (refer to posted map). A jeep trail and woods road takes you to the TT, which you then head to the Nose. There's a trail heading...

    The campsite is on the jeep trail that heads north at a sharp bend between two jeep trails the TT use.

    The spring is located trail north of this junction (i.e. the east jeep trail) between there...

    Maryland Heights

    Very popular, tough in my view. Great view at the overlook. The north loop sees less traffic but still plenty of use with history and second overlook. I recommend using the HF...

    I find the 1:50000 scale to be a good compromise. Go to much smaller, and the maps are less useful as to determine just where the trail is (think the PATC Tuscarora maps). And, going larger, while...

    On the eastbound/south/Virginia side there's a wide pull-off just below the summit. I'd think that'd be a good place to park; tho I've never seen anyone parked there when driving past. (Of course,...

    The spring near Shockey's knob may be difficult to find, even with the clearing/blazing recently done. Especially true in autumn. It's a small rock-lined pit, covered with a piece of red plexiglass...

    I too am thinking Lamb's Knoll. The shelter would be trail north from the summit, and west and downhill from the AT.

    I just followed the Flickr link under the photo and searched thru his albums till I found the photo. It's Dolly Sods, which I suppose shouldn't be too surprising.

    Pole Steeple is an obvious choice and has a great view, but it is a bit more popular of a destination than I like. Sunset Rocks is also in the PGF area, has a good view, and is less visited. In...
