AT-MD section hike (5) from Rt 491 to Mason-Dixon Line

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.

    We will meet in the outside parking lot right across from the main gate of the park. If the outside lot is full, there is a parking lot inside of the park. See you all on Sat.

    Photos have been replaced. The most unusual geographical formation would be Devil's Racecourse which is the 4th photo.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
