SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN, MD: MODERATE HIKE PAIRED WITH A VISIT TO AN ORCHARD AND LOCAL FARM WINERY
As an Autumn bonus, you will have the opportunity to pick up pumpkins, apples, gourds and other fall necessities on the way from the hike to the vineyard.
On this 5-mile loop hike, you’ll have a chance to explore a variety of trails on Sugarloaf Mountain. You’ll experience a diverse section of the park with hikes along a ridgeline that offers beautiful views from several different overlooks.
After the hike, we'll enjoy wine and cider at Rocklands Farm Winery and Market. Not only can you choose from an awesome drink selection, you'll also have the opportunity to buy local pasture-raised meat and eggs and enjoy delectable meals cooked on-site from local vendors.
In honor of autumn, we will make a quick detour at Lewis Orchards on the way to Rocklands Farm, where you can choose from a cornucopia of apples, pumpkins, gourds, and other fall treats.
We will be picking up and dropping off from the from the Metro Center station.
*Please note: This trip has an earlier start and return time so people can have time to get their costumes ready for Halloween parties (we care a lot about Halloween at Trails & Ales). Also, return times back to the city can vary from the listed times depending on the pace of the group and our area's notoriously terrible traffic.
