Hike and Lunch on the Goldmine Trail in Maryland

This is the first spring hike of the season and we will travel along the C&O Canal and the Goldmine Trail.  This is an easy to moderate level hike for 10 miles with some small inclines.  We start in the Carderock parking area to the C&O Canal with views along the Potomac River and then venture off on to the Goldmine Trail up to views of Great Falls on the Maryland side.

Lunch will be served at the end.

This is a rain or shine activity.




* Comfortable, well-broken-in, sturdy walking shoes or ankle-high boots.
* Wear two pairs of socks; first layer is a thin pair that will absorb moisture (liner sock), and the second layer that will add for comfort and keep your foot dry (wool or thicker sock). Bring an extra pair in case you need to refresh
* Protective clothing should include:
- A hat or scarf for sun and bug protection/bike helmets for protection on bike-rides
- Long comfortable loose fitting pants or shorts with knee socks (for warm weather)
- A cotton blend shirt provides for better perspiration and comfort

* Water canteen or bottle filled with water (at least 1 quart, bring what you feel you can carry or need to drink)
* Light snacks such as nuts and fruit are good for energy
* You may want to change up into dryer clothes at the end, so bring an extra T-shirt and pair of socks
* For bike-rides, a hybrid or road bike is needed
