Garrett County – On Tuesday, January 30, at 7:30 p.m. Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) charged Frederick James Glotfelty, 36, of Oakland with operating an off-road vehicle (ORV) in a non-designated area of Mt. Nebo Wildlife Management Area. Glotfelty was allegedly operating a snowmobile at the entrance of a trail off of Route 219 that was not designated for snowmobile use.
Snowmobiles may only be operated on Department of Natural Resources lands on ORV trails designated for snowmobile use. A snowmobile may be used on trails designated for its use from December 15 through March 15 of each year, except for certain trails, which may be closed based upon consideration of overall physical, environmental, and recreational use.
