Trail needs some work

The Enterprise - - Community Forum - Frank Tal­bert, Me­chan­icsville

St. Mary’s County has a well-kept se­cret, and it’s called the Three Notch Trail.

I have been us­ing this trail for many years, and I en­joy rid­ing my bike on it at least three or four times a week.

My prob­lem is that the county does not seem to be main­tain­ing the trail. The north end of the trail has so many roots that are rais­ing the as­phalt, cre­at­ing a haz­ard. Rid­ing my bike over this sec­tion makes me

feel that I am rid­ing slalom at the Olympics. It’s very dan­ger­ous and es­pe­cially now that the leaves are fall­ing makes it a haz­ard.

Come on, St. Mary’s. If we are not go­ing to main­tain the trail then we need to make this part of the trail off lim­its. Some­one is go­ing to get se­ri­ously in­jured. Parts of the trail were fixed years ago, but if we are go­ing to ex­pand the trail, let’s first take care of the dam­aged area.
