What we're about

This group is for queer, trans, non-binary, two spirit, GNC, LGBT folks to enjoy hiking around Baltimore (and beyond) together! Most hikes will be easy to moderate, 3 - 5 miles, not super steep or technical. Our pace is slower than most hiking groups- good for the beginner hiker who is able to walk briskly on flat ground. Typically we go out to lunch together post-hike. We occasionally do other outdoor activities, like archery, canoeing, and kayaking!
Be sure to read the event text for directions, as GPS directions for parks are often inaccurate.
If you want to get involved by organizing an event or suggesting one, send a message to Adrienne Kilby. We're also open to any feedback you have (compliments or criticisms!) about the group and any ideas you have to improve it.

This group coincides with the Facebook group of the same name, so look us up!

Queer Hike Sunset Rocks (8 miles in PA!)

Pinegrove Furnace Gen Store

Join us on Susquehannock tribal lands at Pine Grove Furnace State Park in the Micheaux State Forest of Pennsylvania for a challenging 8 mile loop hike to the beautiful Sunset Rocks Overlook! This hike has 1,200 feet of elevation gain which is mostly made in 3 short, steep inclines. For comparison, this hike is a little longer, but probably not as steep and rocky all as once as the High Rock hike on the AT.

This park has lots of lovely wildlife and a camp store which has tasty snacks and freshly made sandwiches and subs. The hike is about an hour and 45 minute drive from Baltimore, so plan accordingly! Rock scrambling on the overlook is optional but not required.

Directions: Navigate to the Pine Grove Furnace State Park visitor's center at 1100 Pine Grove Rd. Gardners, PA. We will meet in front of the visitor's center!

Bring: water, substantial food for lunch and snacks, good grippy shoes, and a backpack to carry all your stuff!

Restrooms: "women's" and "men's" restrooms by the store/nature center. There may be a latrine partway through the trail.
