This 6.5-mile section is the northern end of AT-MD. We will meet at the parking lot of Pen Mar County Park and will shuttle to where the AT crosses Rt 491 (Raven Rock Rd).
Highlights are Raven Rock Cliff, Devil’s Racecourse & shelter, High Rock, Pen Mar County Park, and Mason-Dixon Line.
It is strenuous, but worth to visit interesting highlights and High Rock for a spectacular view.
When we reach to Pen Mar, we will continue 0.2 mile to the Mason-Dixon Line for the true border of MD and PA. Hiking direction is north bound, except 0.2 mile coming back from the border.
If you bring a dog, please organize your own shuttle.
If it is raining, it will be cancelled.
