UPDATE: The Women Outdoors Mid-Atlantic St. Patrick's Day hike has been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a hike at everyone's local favorite - Sugarloaf Mountain.
We will hike at an easy pace for 5 miles, but this hike is moderately difficult with steep climbs and lots of rocks. There are fabulous views of the surrounding areas.
Sugarloaf Mountain is the prominence visible in the piedmont as it rises out of the plains southeast of Frederick MD. The mountain and trails are maintained by Stronghold, Inc. a non-profit set up by Louise and Gordon Strong in 1946 to preserve the mountain so it could be enjoyed by everyone.
Bring a brown bag lunch and we'll eat at a scenic overlook. Binoculars and hiking poles are also nice to have on this hike. Sorry, no doggies on this hike.
