We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, October 15, 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 #1, Gambrills State Park to Mountaindale Road: Pass an old springhouse, view panoramas of Frederick County and cross winding streams. Moderately difficult terrain: 8 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.
