Time for a short, holiday (MLK) dayhike in Oregon Ridge. I've not been there before, so this is an exporation hike as well. Apologies for the short lead time in setting this up; wanted to squeeze one more hike in, before I find out next week if I'm.....otherwise occupied for the forseeable future.
From "MidAtlanticHikes.com": "This is a pretty easy romp in the woods. It's close to Baltimore and a great place to take the kids and Fido. It's also a good place to go when you have cabin fever real bad or are trying to rehab an injury and a stationary bike or treadmill just doesn't seem to cut it for you. The starting point also offers a pretty nice Nature Center with live snakes and amphibians, an indoor beehive and numerous taxidermy displays. If you are in moderate condition it should take you no more than 2 hours to complete the longest possible circuit of 4.2 miles which is described here."
Lunch, afterwards, in the area is optional.
Fido is welcome on this hike. I will be there with the typical grey Mazda and the typical overexcited brown dog.
We'll meet at the nature center; directions are available here: http://www.google.com...
