The Seneca Ridge Trail (“SRT”) connects Schaeffer Farms to Seneca Creek State Park. The terrain is a mixture of fast flowing single track, roots, some rocks, and creek crossings (most bridged). The Seneca ridge trail is well defined and an out and back. To get into Seneca Creek State Park from the Riffle Ford trailhead, cross Riffle Ford Road and pick up the single track or you can take a left travel a short distance down the road and the hook a ride into the doubletrack gravel entrance. From there you can pick up several trails including the white which is Mink Hollow and will carry you into the park proper. CAUTION: The SRT crosses Germantown Road which is extremely dangerous with vehicles traveling in excess of 45 MPH.
Blackrock Mill Trailhead: 270 to Exit 15B (Rt 118) South toward Germantown. Go approximately 3.2 miles and turn right on Black Rock Rd. The Mill is just after you cross Seneca Creek and has limited parking. Trailhead is across the mill parking lot.
Riffle Ford Trailhead: 270 to Exit 15B (Rt 118) South toward Germantown. Go approximately 3 miles and turn left on Riffle Ford Rd and continue until you cross Seneca Creek. Trailhead is on your right.
Alternately, go to Schaeffer Farms. In order to pick up the trail from Schaeffer, start out on the white loop going clock wise. Stay on the traditional white loop (Not turning off for the half pipe section) Ride until you reach the 2nd orange intersection and keep going, the connection will be on your left about 25 yards past the white/orange intersection, #5 on the Schaeffer Farm map
