Update August 22, 2016: Potomac - Garrett State Forests - Lostland Run Road now open.
As of Monday, August 22, 2016, Lostland Run Area has been re-opened. Contractors have completed the much needed road improvements to this popular area of the Potomac State Forest in Garrett County. This extensive work included grading and resurfacing this severely eroded road bed, as well replacement of some 25 failing culvert pipes and associated inlets and outlets.
For visitor safety as well as the safety of the contractors, the road has been closed to public access since April 12, 2016. Work is now completed and the road is once again open allowing sportsmen and women access to the campsites and hiking trails, as well as providing fishing access to both the Potomac River and Lostland Run.
As the wash-outs and potholes are no longer in place to slow you down, please be mindful of your speed while traveling on this steep and narrow forest access road. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to improve public access to your State Forest.
Firewood for camping must be purchased from local vendors. Please do not bring personal firewood in to the State Forest. A wide variety of forest insect pests are accidentally transported and introduced to new areas by transporting personal firewood between distinct geographic locations. Please keep our forests safe!
