Black Hill Regional Park Trail

It’s surrounded by towering hickory and oak trees, and winds along Little Seneca Lake. Hikers enjoy water views and may spot shorebirds diving for their next meal. Along the way, historical markers identify former mill sites and interpret the area’s past gold history.

Annapolis Rocks Trail

Part of the Appalachian Trail, Annapolis Rocks wanders through South Mountain State Park. Perfect for long distance hikers it’s renowned for its spectacular fall foliage and year-round bird watching opportunities. This hike draws a crowd and takes between two and four hours to complete.¬†Annapolis Rocks Trail is a 38-minute drive away.

Cunningham Falls State Park Trails

Nestled in the Catoctin Mountains, Cunningham Falls, located a 42-minute drive away, features Maryland’s largest cascading waterfall. The park’s Cliff Trail offers a fun yet challenging adventure with steep climbs and downed logs. A wooden boardwalk leads to the viewpoint where the majestic falls drop in a series of cascades separated by small pools.¬†

Hikers can also explore the Lower Trail. It sits about 60 to 80 feet from the stream below, which at times is obscured at the bottom of a wooded ravine. The path gains in elevation and levels out before returning to the junction with the Cliff Trail.
