This is an absolutely beautiful ride through horse country in northern Baltimore County.  We'll ride approx. 22 miles to a High's in Madonna for our rest stop.  Then another 22 miles back to Oregon Ridge.  If access to Oregon Ridge Lodge is blocked, we'll leave from Oregon Ridge Nature Center.  The access road to the nature center is directly behind the Oregon Grille.

Roseda Farms is located at 15317 Carroll Rd.  On Saturdays the farm sells burgers and pit beef sandwiches from 10 AM to 4 PM.  Since we pass the farm near the end of our ride, I suggest we stop for lunch.  If you missed the recent BBC picnic or attended but didn't score your dream burger, here's another opportunity!

Roseda menu: Pit beef sandwich ($7.50), cheeseburger ($7), hamburger ($6.50) & hot dog ($4).  They have chips and cold drinks.  For dessert, they sell pints of Prigel ice cream ($3.50).


ehc3rd@gmail.com Upper and Lower Glencoe are closed at the bridge. Backtracking on Corbett is the best detour. I went down Glencoe yesterday and tried the bike trail over to Corbett--6 downed trees blocking the trail; 3 trees required me to dismount and lift my bike over the trees.
BTW- Western Run is closed from Western Run P&R

gary_kelly Sparks Rd is open so that's a workable detour for Glencoe, Lower Glencoe and Upper Glencoe.

ehc3rd@gmail.com I was not sure about Sparks so I did not mention it. Glencoe is fine to the bridge.
