Summary:
I need to mention something I saw in the first post. Where the guy said "Always bring a gun".
Ok first of all , Great advice! (Kind of) I've seen some unsavory troublemakers back there from time to time. I wish we lived in a state that allowed law abiding citizens to conceal carry to defend ours and our family's lives...But we don't .
So please. Be careful. Police are always coming back to check on things. And it doesn't take much, even if you've done nothing wrong , and boom , You and your vehicle are being searched. Technically you are trespassing , so If an officer is having a bad day, and decides to arrest you for it, you can bet your vehicle will be searched.
As far as the riding area.....I haven't been there in a few years. Always had fun. But just about everyone that ever took bikes back there to ride, were technically trespassing .

Summary:
We ride here on a weekly basis, since it's literally in my back yard (Brooklyn park). It's better if you're on a quad, mostly because of the sand and deep ruts from dirtbikes. Lots of nice hills, but as you get closer to curtis bay, it gets really dumpy. 2 weeks ago we saw some guy bangin a hooker back there on an old tire. Theft is a problem in the area, so when we're riding quads, I always bring a gun. The woods here aren't very thick, so wear plenty of sunscreen if it's a sunny day

Summary:
Not a bad ride today. First time out...wasn't sure what the police scene might be, considering the posted no tresspassing signs. Conditions were dry and hot...sweated quite a bit, but it is August. Ran into no trouble with law enforcement...things seemed rather mellow. Several trails were quite steep and challenging. All different kinds of terrain. Although I was on two wheels, would say that four would be the most fun, considering some of the things you have to blast through. Worth the travel to get there!

Recommended Route:
173 exit to Pennington ave.

Summary:
I've ridden Bloody Pond for over 30 years. I've never had a problem with the police. In fact, the police where there a few months ago looking for a stolen bike, when I rode by, they just waved.

The terrain varies tremendously throughout the year. From very dry almost desert like conditions during the summer to super muddy in the winter. There are flat trails, hills, woodland trails, streams, swamps, sand, mud, clay. All with very few rocks. One time you ride, you'll curse the deep soft sand, the next time, it will be so wet and muddy, you'll be glad you've found a nice sandy patch to get some traction. I've seen a lot of ATV folks there and a fair number of dirt bike riders. I'm a dirt biker and everyone seems to have a great time and stay out of each other's way.

In my opinion Bloody Pond is the best riding place in the entire Baltimore area.

Recently, a bunch of morons have been dumping trash and burning stolen cars there. So, it's likely to be closed soon.

Summary:
I was four weelen at the Pond the other day with a few of my boys, when a bunch of cops came up on us. They said that the property has been bought from a private buisness and that they were not lettin anybody ride there anymore. The next day a friend of mine got arrested there or tresspassing. So not cool!!!!!!!
