“A newish trail in MoCo offering an alternative to the southern part of the Seneca Greenway Trail”— Pam Smith
Park at Rileys Lock or Montevideo Rd (south end) or Black Rock Mill on Black Rock Rd (north end).
The portion of Seneca Bluffs nearest Rte 28 also has some rock sections which tend to coincide with very small stream crossings. Otherwise, the trail is almost all hard packed dirt and without many tree roots. There are sections that become very muddy, and remain so, for days after rain.
However, much of the trail remains high above Seneca Creek and offers many twists and turns to keep it smooth and fun.
