This rocky 7.4 mile hike is going to bring us to great views from Old Rag Mountain. Elevation gain is 2200'. We begin our hike on the Weakley Hollow Fire Road, continue with Saddle Trail, and finish on the Ridge trail. Dirt roads and dirt trails meander through mixed hardwood forest on lower slopes and along the trout stream at the foot of the mountain. Park entry fee is $8/person.

    Darn! I really wanted to do this hike. I didn't think I'd get a spot as there were 16 on the waiting list so I had committed myself on a 30 mile MTB ride at gunpowder falls state park trail this sat. I will watch out for the next Old Rag hike.

    I noticed that there are 13 people on the waitlist. Can we create another group to go on the hike the same day? And how do I RSVP if I want to bring someone with me?
