Trail Rides

Please come out to enjoy a TROT trail ride and consider leading a ride yourself!  TROT trail rides are fun and a great opportunity to learn new trails, meet other TROT members, and find a new trail riding buddy.  To lead a ride, contact our trail ride coordinator, Barbara Sollner-Webb.

To participate in a scheduled ride:

  • Contact the ride leader to sign-up and learn the ride’s starting time and other details.
  • If a ride is postponed or cancelled, the ride leader will notify you.
  • Check the TROT website and TROT and Maryland Trail Riders listservs for the most current ride information.
  • All ride participants:
    • Must wear helmets
    • Provide appropriate documentation of current negative Coggins test for the horse, in compliance with Maryland state law.
    • Be a TROT member – One-day TROT memberships are available at the ride for $5

If you need a ride to the event or can offer one, please email Barbara Sollner-Webb, so that this information can be included in an upcoming newsletter, or contact the ride leader.


Trail Maintenance

Anytime you are on a trail ride and if safe to do so, you can perform trail maintenance by clipping branches that impede passageway along a trail.  In addition, you can participate in scheduled trail maintenance days.

Amy Kimble is the TROT Adopt-A-Trail coordinator and she has challenged all TROT members to perform two hours of trail maintenance a year.  Please contact Amy for additional information about participating in trail maintenance activities.  She can be reached at 301-748-8310 or

Please report your trail work hours to Amy, who tracks this information for the state; these hours also help assess park usage.
