Frederick County Information

Frederick County is located in northwest Maryland and has borders with both Virginia and Pennsylvania. It is home to the city of Frederick which is roughly 50 miles from Washington D.C. 

While located in the northwest of the state, Frederick County is not situated in the panhandle region which extends westward. In a way, you can think of Frederick County as the gateway to the forested ridges of Maryland's far northwestern areas. 

As mentioned, Frederick County shares borders with both Virginia across the Potomac to the south, and Pennsylvania to the north. The western border follows a forested ridge of protected parks and reserves, traced by the famous Appalachian Trail. The eastern boundary follows the Monocacy River south from the border with Pennsylvania, before moving east along Little Pipe Creek. Near the town of Union Bridge, the border switches to following various country roads southward towards the border with Montgomery County. 

The Interstate 70 and 270 Highways run through Frederik County from the southeast to the northwest. From the town of Frederick in the center of Frederick County to the city of Baltimore, the trip would take roughly 45 minutes by car. The journey from Frederick to Washington D.C. is approximately 1 hour. 

Land For Sale In Frederick County

Frederick County's strong agricultural involvement has made it the number one producer of dairy products in the state of Maryland and has helped maintain the 19 parks and numerous trails throughout the region.

Frederick County is a great area to find land for sale, and its long farming history provides an abundance of historic homes and real estate as well. 

Frederick County is the largest county in Maryland and much of this area is devoted to farmland. In other words, apart from a few towns and some protected forests, Frederick County's land use is overwhelmingly agricultural. 

Frederick County's forests extend north to south near the eastern boundary of the county. These forests typically follow ridge mountains (Catoctin Mountain and South Mountain), with farms filling up the Middleton Valley in between. These ridges are home to expansive parks and reserves, like Cunningham Falls State Park, Catoctin Mountain Park (home to Camp Mountain), Seymour B Cooper Memorial Wildlife Sanctuary, Frederick Municipal Forest, and Gambrill State Park. And, as mentioned, the Appalachian Trail runs down the westernmost system of parks and ridges.

Another prominent natural feature in Frederick County is the Monocacy River which runs from the north to the south through the center of the county.
