Okay, gals, we're going gamboling at Gambrill. Join us for a moderately strenuous hike on the Black Locust Trail at Gambrill State Park. There are some steep descents and ascents over some uneven trail along this 3.5-mile hike, so bring your hiking poles. The rewards are two overlooks - one of the city of Frederick and the other of the valley town of Middletown.
This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors. We invite non-members to come along on two events to see what you think. On your third event, we'll ask you to join the Mid-Atlantic chapter of Women Outdoors. You can also join now by clicking on this Join Us link.
Gambrill State Park charges $3/vehicle for Maryland residents and $5/vehicle for out-of-state residents.
Registration closes on Thursday, Nov. 19. Please include a telephone number so we can get in touch with you in case of any last minute changes.
