At close to 900 acres, the Oregon Ridge Park forest has been called Baltimore County’s premier public forest. A forest study found that 20 of the 22 forest stands have trees more than 100 years old, and that 84% of all trees are 18” dbh (that’s approximately 54” in circumference) or greater. Oaks dominate 80% of the forested acres, but we will see several natural community habitats, a diversity of canopy trees, understory shrubs, ferns and herbaceous plants.
Will be on a well maintained trail, but will need go steadily up hill and then steadily down. Suitable hiking shoes advised.
