I have a government mandated holiday coming up on Monday October 14th and was planning on doing my yearly bike outing to a trail to do some caching.

The problem is that I don't have a good idea as to where to go this year. Over the past few years I've done the following:
2018: Antietam Adventure
2017: WNW Trail in Westminster
2016: GSH Trail in Germantown
2015: ICC Trail

This year's possible candidates include:
FatBaldOldMan's two ABA trails in Bel Air
DiamondBack7's diamond geoart along the WBA trail in Croftton
Western Maryland Rail Trail caches in the area of Hancock
Delaware Commission's C&D Trail in Delaware

I am also open to suggestions because I just like to use the free day off to ride and enjoy some caching.

Anybody want to join me and help me figure out where to go?

Here are two more options for you.

There are about 50 caches along this 10.5 mile trail that runs from Charles Town to Martinsburg WV.

There are 100s of cache along this trail that runs from Richmond to Jamsetown VA.

Have you completed the Maryland Star caches? (GC4YVNQ) My understanding is that this is quite doable in a day by bike.

Some of them are a bit off trail, and some are in Little Bennett, just be warned.

I haven't done these in a while, but this was a great set. Some quite challenging. Most of it is/was in the open, so fall and less sun/heat is a great time.

If you liked GSH, C&D is similar. Nice ride along the canal, although it can get a little bit repetitive. The north side has a paved hiker/biker trail most of the way, while the south side is mostly unpaved. I rode a loop from Chesapeake City out to St. Georges and back, crossing to the north side at Chesapeake City and back to the south side at St Georges. Both the Chesapeake CIty and the St Georges bridges are bikeable. The easternmost bridge at Delaware City is not bike friendly.

I wouldn't mind returning there and biking the entire north side out to Delaware City and back. The caches are definitely best to do as a tag team.
