06 April 2013 DudleyGrunt Found it
Was out in Western Maryland to seek CAM and MML 2012, Munzees, TC's and OCAN hides. Enjoyed the walk out, but a neighborhood dog, decided to let me know it was his area. He was no problem, but just wanted to bark a lot. Thought he might follow me out, though.
I seemd to have found nearer possible parking, too. N 39 38.253 W 78 19.740. Seemed to be legal and had signage where it lead off the main road.
Thanks and Happy Trails!
