This small portion of the Snaggy Mountain Trail at Garrett State Forest in Oakland, Maryland is an easy 0.6 mile out-and-back hike that leads from Swallow Falls Rd and over to Cranesville Rd and back.

Initially we mapped this hike because we couldn't find any trail maps in the area near where we parked on Swallow Falls Rd; however, we did find a trail map for Garrett State Forest at the other parking lot along Cranesville Rd, where this GPS data meets that road.

There's not much to see on this portion of the Snaggy Mountain Trail; however, note that there's a trail that runs parallel this one, which appears to head to Swallow Falls State Park. There's another parking lot, for this parallel trail, just east on Swallow Falls Rd from where this trail starts.

Dogs and biking are both allowed here. Primitive camping and backpacking are both allowed here as well - please check out the park's site for more details.

Blaze color: This portion of the Snaggy Mountain Trail had blueish-green blaze colors, hence the green blaze setting.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉
