Bring an extra pair in case you need to refresh * Protective clothing should include: - A hat or scarf for sun and bug protection/bike helmets for protection on bike-rides - Long comfortable loose fitting pants or shorts with knee socks (for warm weather) - A cotton blend shirt provides for better perspiration and comfort ********************************************* WHAT TO BRING: * Water canteen or bottle filled with water (at least 1 quart, bring what you feel you can carry or need to drink) * Light snacks such as nuts and fruit are good for energy * You may want to change up into dryer clothes at the end, so bring an extra T-shirt and pair of socks Where to Meet: Monkton NCR trailhead (at the train station) Monkton Location - Be onsite by 8AM: From the Baltimore beltway, 695, take I-83 to Exit 27, go toward Hereford (east) 0.4 miles on MD-137/Mt Carmel Rd. Turn right on York Road then immediately turn left (east) on Monkton Road. Follow for 3 miles, and look for the parking lot and park office on the left. The parking lot at this location is small, but there's plenty of space along the shoulder of Monkton Rd.
