Rivaling the Appalachian Trail, the Great Eastern Trail provides a premier hiking experience on a series of existing trails that are being linked to each other into a long-distance footpath in the Appalachian Mountains, stretching from Alabama, to the Finger Lakes Trails in New York. Maryland Portion: The Maryland section of the Great Eastern Trail begins in Hancock and follows the C&O Canal towpath until it gets to Outdoor Club Road. It follows existing roads and trails throughout Green Ridge until it hits MD Route 144. Trail organizations are still working on the extensions of this trail north into Pennsylvania.

The Great Eastern Trail is blazed with white paint throughout its stretch through Green Ridge State Forest.
