Patapsco Rockburn Fast Hike

Rockburn Branch Park Fields 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Nice weather coming up, so let's hike! For a little variety this week, we'll start at Rockburn Branch Park and hike about 5 miles at a fast pace (20 min/mile or faster).

This hike is not for beginners. Please only RSVP if you hike or walk at least 4 miles per week at a faster pace. If you can't keep up, we will leave you behind, so it's your responsibility to know the route and how to get home on your own if you have to.

For everyone's comfort and safety, THIS EVENT IS LIMITED TO MEMBERS WHO HAVE BEEN VACCINATED FOR COVID-19. Please BRING PROOF OF VACCINATION (see COVID-19 Guidelines below). If you haven't gotten your vaccination yet, please do!

Enter Rockburn Branch Park from the entrance at 5400 Landing Rd, Elkridge, MD 21075, then drive all the way back to the circle at the end of the road. That's where we'll meet.

The hike is not "first-come-first-served". Everyone will start on the wait list. We'll try to take a mix of consistently reliable members and new members, and attempt to give everyone a chance to come on hikes. Note that this event is also cross posted with the Fast and Fun Hikers meetup group.
