About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, November 12, 2016.

Families and individuals, catch a glimpse of Maryland's history and folklore while hiking the Catoctin Trail. This 27-mile trail runs from Gambrill State Park through the Frederick City Watershed and ends in Catoctin Mountain Park. Nine miles of the trail crisscrosses through Cunningham Falls State Park. Earn a certificate and patch by hiking each of the four sections in the series at least once within a three-year period.


Catoctin Trail Section #3, Hunting Creek to Houck Area: Pass the Manor picnic area and hardwood forest and enjoy the scenic view from Bob's Hill Overlook. Steep terrain: 6 miles.

Under 16 must be accompanied by a participating parent or guardian. Participants should be in good shape, have good balance and depth perception to be able to hike two miles over rocky hills without a break and the ability to complete the distance indicated.
