    Great hike! I love Hashawha and it was nice to meet new folks as well - a very nice time.

    I'd really like to attend this one (Never been there), but I'm afraid too many planets would have to align to get me there on time, Deb, roughly how long would it take to get there from where Marriottsville Road crosses Liberty Road? I'd take Deer Park past Soldiers Delight into Reisterstown.

      I'm not sure but from Soldiers Delight it would probably be 25 mins to Hashawha, maybe longer in rush hour traffic.

      That's kind of what I thought. I don't think I can make that happen tomorrow. Maybe next time.
