Catoctin Mountain Park, MD: Moderate hike paired with a visit to a to a farm brewery with an adjoining vineyard.
Are you a waterfall lover? You’ll have a chance to view Cunningham Falls, Maryland’s largest cascading waterfall!
This 5-mile loop hike has it all! From the start, you’ll hike directly to Cunningham Falls and view the water as it flows 78 feet down a large rock face. After checking out the falls, the trail climbs steadily up to the Hog Rock overlook and the Blue Ridge Summit view. The unique rock formations and incredible views are worth the climb.
After the hike, we will head to Red Shedman Farm Brewery and Linganore Winecellars. This brewery and vineyard share the same beautiful farmland, so you get the best of both worlds as you sample delicious beer and wine. You can also indulge in their wine slushies, the perfect way to cool down after a good hike!
We will be picking up and dropping off from the Metro Center and Rosslyn Metro stops.
