This will be a strenuous 11 mile hike up/down three mountains in Cunningham Falls State Park and Catoctin Mountain National Park near Thurmont, MD. The hike is part of the training hike series to get ready for the various summer hike challenges such as the Half-Presi hike to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire in May.
We will meet at the Catoctin Mountain NP Visitor Center (7:45 am) and start the hike (8 am) to several points of interest, namely Cat Rock, Chimney Rock, Wolf Rock, Cunningham Falls, Hog Rock, and Thurmont Vista before heading back to our cars. This will be a loop hike with several bail points if you need to shorten the hike.
After the hike, we can stop in Thurmont for a meal to discuss the hike and upcoming events.
More information will be posted as the date gets closer.
