Believe it or not, we saw a black bear when we scouted this hike at Catoctin Mountain Park. Wow! We also saw a brilliant scarlet tanager. So definitely bring your binoculars and sense of adventure to this hike.
The loop is about five miles long and the trail is steep and rocky in places so good, sturdy hiking boots are recommended. Bring hiking poles if you have them.

Registration closes Thursday, September 8. Please include a telephone number in case we need to let you know about last minute changes.
P.S. If by chance, the president is at Camp David on September 10, then this particular trail will be closed. In that case, we'll hike the Chimney Rock/Wolf Rock loop at Catoctin Mountain Park.
