Long Pond Trail follows the 15-Mile Creek stream valley. This trail winds over ridges and valleys with several steep ascents and descents. These features make it one of the most challenging trails at Green Ridge State Forest.
The trail is named for the beautifully remote area where 15-Mile Creek pools into a long rectangular pond-like area. The hike descends through the Potomac Bends Wildlands to the Potomac River.
The confluence of the Potomac River with 15-Mile Creek was a pioneer landmark. From here it was 15 miles to Oldtown, thus the creek's name.
The trail descends and connects to the towpath on the C&O Canal National Historic Park. The Potomac River borders Green Ridge State Forest for approximately 30 miles.
